  • Why choose this qualification?

    The Gateway Qualifications Level 4 Certificate for Higher Level Teaching Assistants has been developed with the support of the Higher Level Teaching Assistant National Partnership, which comprises the five approved HLTA regional providers of assessment. The qualification can only be offered by approved Gateway Qualifications centres who are also recognised HLTA Regional Providers of Assessment.

    The qualification recognises the skills developed by Teaching Assistants as they prepare to progress to the role of Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Successful candidates will have shown evidence of meeting the Professional Standards for HLTA Status which are captured in the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the qualification.

    Achievement of the qualification does not in itself confer HLTA status but centres are expected only to seek certification for the qualification for learners who have achieved this status. The qualification is not a requirement for HLTA recognition but can be used to enhance the assessment process and provide successful learners with a nationally-recognised qualification as evidence of the skills they have gained.

    Please note that this not a licence to practise qualification and does not in itself confer HLTA status, nor is it a requirement for recognition as an HLTA. However centres are expected to apply for certification only for those learners who have achieved HLTA status.
