“The apprentice programme has allowed our school to take on two fantastic young people who are eager and keen to work within education. We believe that the creativity we offer and the support we can give will enable us to aid learning, mould understanding and pedagogy and develop strong Teaching Assistants who will support education of the future."
Head of School (Royal Greenwich Primary School)
"We are delighted with this scheme as it enables young adults working towards being employed at the end of their programme. They gain a tremendous range of valuable work experience and by attending college will gain a qualification theorising their experience. We are looking forward to employing other LSA Apprentices and sharing Business Apprentices across our partnership of schools."
(School Business Manager –Royal Borough of Greenwich School)
"I have found the apprenticeship to be really helpful in gaining on the job experience and study for a qualification at the same time. I work 1:1 with SEN children and support them in class. I work with KS2 and EYFS which is really good as I get to work with children of different ages. The apprenticeship will allow me to continue to work with children and continue to enjoy my work in schools."
"Working as an apprentice TA is a really good experience, especially if you enjoy working with young children. It was a really good choice for me to do the apprenticeship because it has given me the experience and the qualification I need to do what I want in the future."
