Following the successful introduction of the Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship we have now grown our provision to offer a wide range of school-based apprenticeships including:

  • Level 2 Customer Service
  • Level 3 Early Years Educator, General or Specialist Teaching Assistants in SEND, PE or the Arts and Business Administration
  • Level 3 with a level 4 accreditation Learning Mentor

Apprenticeships are a great way to launch a career, learn key skills and gain the qualifications that employers are looking for.

Our apprenticeship programme provides:

  • Employment in a school for a minimum 30 hours per week over 5 days, with one paid release day to attend college representing the 20% off the job element
  • Apprenticeship course lengths vary from 13 to 18 months depending on the course and level
  • An opportunity to nurture and grow people of all ages to work in schools
