Advanced Apprenticeship in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme that provides you with practical skills through on-the-job training combined with theoretical knowledge through off-the-job learning. An apprenticeship will give you the best of worlds, learning and working, enabling you to earn money whilst gaining qualifications and experience.

An Advanced Apprenticeship is a great way of developing the skills and gaining the knowledge and experience you need to progress in your chosen career. This apprenticeship is ideal for those currently working as or wishing to work as teaching/classroom/learning/behaviour support assistants or practitioners in primary, secondary or special schools. The qualification will help individuals enhance and develop their skills further in relation to the learning, welfare/care and behaviour of pupils. 

This qualification is based on the National Occupational Standards for Supporting Teaching and learning in Schools and is designed for teaching/classroom/learning assistants who work at a more advanced level across primary, secondary and special schools. The qualification will help candidates to enhance and develop their skills further in relation to pupils learning, welfare/care and behaviour e.g. administration, planning, supporting and evaluating individuals and groups in learning activities according to their needs and promoting positive behaviour.
