This qualification reflects the role of workers who assist teachers and support student learning in a range of classroom settings, under the guidance of a teacher or other educational professional. At this level, workers may be involved in both formal and informal facilitation of learning, including for those students in need of additional support. In these roles, the education support worker sources and analyses information from diverse sources, may work with limited direct supervision and could provide guidance to other workers.
Education support workers work mainly in classroom settings in schools with children aged between five and 18 years, but may also work in other education settings within the community.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
