With our Teacher Apprenticeship we’ve made it easy for primary and secondary schools to use the Apprenticeship Levy to train existing teaching assistants, cover supervisors and others as home-grown teachers. Learners undertake the course while employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week. On this uniquely accessible course learners will cover both academic theory and practice as they learn the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be an effective and successful teacher.
Who is this course for?
This Apprenticeship Levy-funded course is ideal for the widest range of suitably qualified candidates including: teaching assistants in schools; graduates employed as unqualified teachers in supervisory or other roles in schools; other, degree-qualified non-teaching employees in schools who wish to undertake Initial Teacher Training. All can now achieve QTS through flexible online study while they continue to work in their school. In addition, schools or trusts may use this funded training route to offer Apprentice Teacher roles to attract, recruit and train graduates.
