Summary

Our Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools intermediate apprenticeship lasts approximately 13 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 2 learner could include:

  • Getting the classroom ready for lessons
  • Listening to children read or reading to them
  • Helping children with special educational needs

Once the apprenticeship has been achieved, the learner has the opportunity to advance to further education and qualifications, such as a level 3 apprenticeship in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.
