Program Description Would you like to work in a school with children who have diverse learning needs? Join our certificate program. Education assistants work in a classroom, and support children with diverse learning needs. In this program, you'll train to be an education assistant through classroom learning and practicum experience in a school. Do you plan on extending your education? Transfer your courses and complete the Disability Studies Diploma in over a year. Learners in the face-to-face full-time program write the Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES) in semester one.
