I'm currently a SAHM to a 2.5 and 5.5 Yr old . Before giving up work, I'd always worked in admin/offices. I only have 4 GCSE's grace A-C, and an NVQ L2 in Business Administration, so know I'm under educated wrt getting on a SLT course.
I've just been thinking since I've had kids that I'm definitely more of a people person, enjoy helping others, and am looking for a career to work towards (at the grand old age of 35).
Do you think I could get a SLTA job part-time and would it work with school aged children? Obviously this would depend on what setting I was in; do you get to choose?
I've had a quick browse on the NHS website, but would love to hear from people actually doing the job right now, especially if you have young children.
I'm about to start doing something similar and although I am postgraduate educated in my previous field, the fact that I am doing access to science is important as NVQ 3 was one of the essential criteria. I'm doing mine via distance learning centre. It costs just over £1k all in and is tough because I'm aiming for distinctions but I'm enjoying it.
