We offer two levels of Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Apprenticeships, offering employers flexibility to attract and develop new recruits as well as developing existing employees. The courses aim to provide apprentices with the skills, knowledge, experience and certification needed to become an integral part of your team.
The Intermediate Apprenticeship is suitable for employers looking to recruit into a supervised teaching assistant role such as a classroom assistant and learning support assistant role.
