Our Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools advanced apprenticeship lasts approximately 18 months. During the apprenticeship the learner completes practical on-the-job training to get real experience and improve their skills. Learners also study the underpinning theory behind their job role to help them understand their job, resulting in increased motivation, ambition and productivity.

Daily activities of a Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools level 3 learner could include:

  • Helping with outings and sports events
  • Keeping records on children’s progress
  • Leading classes with help from the teacher

Once the apprenticeship has been achieved, the learner has the opportunity to advance to further education and qualifications, such as a level 5 Foundation Degree for Teaching and Learning Support .

This helps them to progress their career from Teaching or Classroom Assistant to a range of roles such as Team Leader, Bilingual Support Assistant or Behaviour Support Support Co-ordinator.
