Teacher Assistant Career Training Programs
Working as a teachers' aide is a viable career option for parents and other adults looking for part-time work. While over half of teachers' aides do hold full-time positions, 40% worked part-time in 2004. The educational requirements for teachers' aides vary, but the best opportunities should be available to candidates with career training. Most teachers' aide programs range from 1-2 years and involve a blend between independent study and classroom experience. There are many online courses available now which allow students to complete their reading and coursework independently, offering flexibility for busy schedules.
