I am a SAHM at the moment but would like to eventually re-train as a teacher. I don't feel my dc's are old enough at the moment for me to give the commitment required to do a PGCE but I would like to consider being a classroom assistant for a few years. I've been looking at online "distance" learning courses.... something like this perhaps?
Has anyone done one? Are they useful? I do help out at DD's school a couple of mornings per week but can't really do more at the moment because I haven't got childcare for my younger DS.
PS I completed the L3 certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools in May of this year (distance learning through Study House), whilst volunteering at my children's school and now have a paid position in a (different) school.
