Intermediate Apprenticeship - Supporting Teaching & Learning In Schools

Overview

Teaching Assistants play a key role in classroom and assisting learning across primary, secondary or special education. They support the class and teacher, helping manage workloads and effectively deliver learning. They may work with children of any age range individually or in groups, including those with special educational needs and emotional vulnerabilities. They make sure pupils understand the work they've been set and stay on track making continual progress.

This Apprenticeship will help improve your skills and progress your career and is especially designed for people who would like to become a Teaching Assistant, Learning Support Assistant, Specialist Support Assistant or Support for Specialist Curriculum Areas.

The focus of the course is to train you further in child development, health and safety, building relationships and supporting pupils' learning. With the extra skills and knowledge will come growing confidence and the opportunity to demonstrate competence to employers in order to advance your career.

        Teaching & Learning

        As a competence qualification it will need the support of an employer. Learning will be varied and will include workplace learning and training workshops run by our expert tutors with PowerPoints, videos, tutor-led group discussions and group work so you will get to meet other people on a similar journey to you.

        There is also a requirement of a few hours of individual and home study and there may be the requirement of witness testimonies from the workplace. You will have one-to-one session with your tutor and access to online resources. Your tutor will regularly visit the workplace to observe you carrying out the job to complete the competence element and to give you training and feedback. An e-portfolio will be used for collection and submission of evidence.
