"Just wanted to say Thank you to Linda and the team for all their support. I've now completed the teachers aide career sampler course and now I'm 100% certain this is what I want to do as a career.  I've now started applying for positions at my local schools and I'm going to undertake the more advanced courses you have available.  This was the most stress-free course I've ever done.  I've recommend you guys to my friends too." - Kathryn

OCA's Education Support (Teachers Aide) career sampler course is the first step to a solid career in education, giving you the skills and knowledge you need to inspire and support children as a teacher's Aide in a classroom or community education setting.

Our teacher aide industry experts have designed this course so you can experience "a day in the life of a teachers aide" whilst gaining an insight into the study involved in this career.

Teacher aides may do some or all of the following:

  • work with students one to one, and in small groups, following a programme prepared by the teacher
  • help with extra activities such as physical exercise or physiotherapy
  • meet with teachers and parents to discuss students' progress
  • help teachers plan lessons for students with special educational needs
  • help students learn English as a second language
  • give medication to students who need it
  • assist students with personal care such as toileting or eating.

Teacher aides need to have knowledge of the following:

  • how to work with students who have special needs
  • the school curriculum and subject areas in which they work
  • different teaching methods and learning styles
  • behavioural management techniques, such as ways to calm an angry child
  • child learning and development
  • school rules, policies and procedures, including safety and emergency procedures
  • first aid.

There are no formal education requirements to become a teacher aide. However, many employers prefer to hire teacher aides with experience working with young people. Teacher aides must undergo a police background check.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

This online teaching course will show you a glimpse into the daily life of a teacher's aide and what your career would look like. You will sample the expertise to communicate and work collaboratively with teachers and colleagues and support all students' holistic well-being, health and safety. You will learn the skills you need to help children learn and develop numeracy, literacy and oral language skills. You will become familiar with implementing planned education programs in classroom settings and helping with the organisation and management of classrooms and community education centres.

All online lessons are presented in step-by-step learning modules and video sessions perfect for studying at a pace that suits your lifestyle – and you can get started at any time.
