The Certificate III in Education Support has become a very popular teacher's assistant course in Australia. It's a nationally recognised education support course which has a special focus on assisting a teacher in a range of different classroom contexts. This qualification has been particularly popular among parents who are looking for a rewarding career that involves assisting a teacher in the classroom and contributing to the overall growth and development of children, while being able to work 'school hours' in order to fit in with looking after their own children. It is also well suited to students who have completed Year 12, and are undertaking a gap year. Additionally the course provides an excellent grounding for those wishing to study teaching at University.
Students will work full time as a trainee in a primary or secondary school.
