What’s in the Apprenticeship?
Most learning happens on the job, learning from experienced teachers and learning assistants in school.
Apprentices learn about the principles of education and how children learn.
They’ll learn about safeguarding and the law and how to keep children and young people safe.
Apprentices will learn to plan activities and about health and safety.
They’ll learn about team working or helping individual pupils on their own.
What’s required from an Apprentice:
Rathbone emphasises employment skills so Apprentices understand they need to be smart, well presented, punctual and to behave in a professional manner to get ahead.
How long does an Apprenticeship last?
People must be able to perform the job to national standards so it depends on how fast someone learns.
If someone left school with no other experience in supporting teaching and learning, they could achieve their Apprenticeship in around 15 months.
What qualifications can be achieved?
- A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in supporting teaching and learning in schools proving they’re skilled.
- A Technical Certificate that shows they have the knowledge they need.
- Practical work skills in communications, using numbers and ICT.
By law, people must have an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check before they can work with children and young people. Rathbone arranges this for an Apprentice.
Apprentices will also be provided with the employment skills to work in the sector and will understand employer rights and responsibilities.
