Higher Level Teaching Assistant Course

The Yorkshire Rose Teaching Partnership aspires to invest in people and our community.


We have been facilitating the Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) course since 2015, delivered by Leeds Trinity University. Leeds Trinity University has been providing Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) courses for a number of years and is one of the most established and highly regarded providers in the region, as well as being part of the HLTA National Assessment Partnership. They are also a key partner in the HLTA North​ Consortium, which provides assessment and information for existing and aspiring HLTAs.


This bespoke training route means that applicants have to be employed within a school and have the support of their Headteacher when applying for the course.  During 2022/23 we worked with 9 schools across the Batley and Birstall area and all six schools within the Batley Multi Academy Trust were involved with this training programme.


The 2022/23 cohort included 64% of trainees aged over 30 and over half were working mothers, which is representative of our community and demonstrates how we endeavour to support the women in our local community with career pathways. 


The next cohort of trainees will begin the HLTA course in December 2023.
