The Teaching Assistant Program is an integrated course for adults in transition to new careers working with children. Students are prepared for employment in both day care centers and school settings. The Fall 2020 program includes 100 hours of online instruction. Classroom instruction includes six hours of test review for the New York State Assessment of Teaching Skills Test (NYSATAS). During the course of the program, the student will complete workshops and receive certificates in Child Abuse ID, School Violence Prevention & Intervention, and DASA (Bullying) provided requirements are met.
Prerequisite: High school Diploma or a GED. For other requirements, see the coordinator. In the Spring 2021, upon successful completion, we will offer a separate internship course with instructor guidance for an additional fee.
