I've been interested in this for a while. I know you can do it voluntarily, and I have applied for this, but what qualification would you need to do it as paid employment? Also, I'm interested to know how flexible it is and how well paid. Thank you.
A friend of mine did it as part of the Surestart scheme. Children were put into a creche facility while the parents brushed up on their literacy and numeracy skills. She is a fully qualified primary school teacher though. If you have a degree I believe you can do a one year conversion course for teaching.
i volunteered as a help for adult numeracy, the tutor i worked with was a qualified teacher, don't know if its a requirement but unless you have equivalent experience i imagine so. contact your local adult education college, they'd be able to tell you more.
Thank you. I do have a degree, but not in teaching. And I really really can't afford to give up work for a year to do the teaching qualification. I'll have a look through your links next week when the kids are back at school, Redtartanlass, and see if there's any other way in. Thanks for your help.
