Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) preparation courses
Leeds Trinity University has been providing Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) preparation courses for many years. We are one of the most established and highly regarded providers in the region and part of the HLTA National Assessment Partnership. We are also a key partner in the HLTA North Consortium, which provides assessment and information for existing and aspiring HLTAs.

Applications are welcomed from Teaching Assistants in all types of schools. In order to meet the entry requirements, applicants must:
