Leeds Trinity University has been providing Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) preparation courses for over ten years. We are one of the most established and highly regarded providers in the region and part of the HLTA National Assessment Partnership. We're also a key partner in the HLTA North
consortium, which provides assessment and information for existing and aspiring HLTAs.
Our HLTA preparation courses give you the opportunity to learn from HLTA experts at venues across Yorkshire. Typically, the courses run over three or four days spread over a number of weeks.
We use the National HLTA Standards during the assessment and to verify HLTA status.
