Hi everyone,
I've finished my english language studies degree recently and I'm looking for teaching assistant jobs. Today, a recruitment agency called me and offered an online teaching course for 9 weeks which costs £300. Do I really
need to make this course to get a job although I have a degree? Please advise me..
The course is called 'The Essential Knowledge of Key Stage Teaching'

Nope. What you need is experience in a school... get to a school, volunteer!
Seriously. I would say over 90% of the TAs in my school and our partner mainstream school (I'm in special ed) started as volunteers and then got supply..then contracts. And you NEED experience to have a best shot anyway.. you don't need to pay for a course!
