Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship
With our Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship, we’ve made it easy for primary and secondary schools to use the Apprenticeship Levy to train both experienced and new members of staff.
Predominantly online, the Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship covers education across all age ranges and encompasses special educational needs and emotional vulnerabilities. The course is for teaching assistants who put pupils at the heart of education and includes not only the promotion of academic achievement but also a realisation of the importance of a child’s emotional needs. This includes promoting self-belief, social inclusion and a high self-esteem, which all play an integral part in pupils’ well-being. Teaching assistants undertaking this course will learn strategies to ensure that pupils thrive in a positive, nurturing, safe environment.
Who is this course for?
This Apprenticeship Levy-funded course would suit those new to the role of teaching assistant or within their first three years of appointment and new to teaching, and will support their ongoing development. With both core and optional modules, the course can offer a personalised learning route.

Typically, a Teaching Assistant Apprentice is expected to have already achieved 5 GCSEs, including Maths and English, Grade C or above or 4/5. However, there are opportunities to work with teaching assistants who have not gained these grades but are committed to gaining these confirmations prior to the completion of the course.
