    About this qualification

    The OCNLR Level 1 Award in Preparing to Work in Schools has been developed to provide an introduction to key issues for people who are new to working in a school, or learning centre for young people, in a non-teaching capacity, or for people who hope to start doing so soon. The key issues are covered, with safeguarding the subject of a mandatory unit, and with a choice from other optional units including: ‘how schools work as organisations’, ‘communicating with children and young people’, ‘conflict in the classroom’, ‘craft activities’, ‘supporting learners for whom English is not their first language’, and ‘awareness of mental health and wellbeing’.
