Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship (Level 3)

Teaching Assistants work in Primary, Special and Secondary education across all age ranges encompassing special educational needs and emotional vulnerabilities. The primary role of the Teaching Assistant is to support the class teacher to enhance pupils’ learning either in groups or individually, ensuring pupils understand the work set, know their learning objectives and stay on task in order to make progress.

Delivery

  • Apprentices will attend 10 half day workshops.
  • Each apprentice will be allocated a training adviser who will visit them in the workplace on a regular basis to provide training and support and monitor their progress and the training they are receiving from the employer. The employer will be invited to regular progress reviews.

Gateway

  • The end point assessment can only commence once the apprentice has developed all the knowledge, skills and behaviours defined in the standard.
  • To help determine whether the apprentice is ready for end point assessment a meeting will take place involving the apprentice’s line manager, their training adviser and any other appropriate managers from the employer.
  • Apprentices must have achieved a level 2 qualification in English and maths before being entered for their final apprenticeship assessment.

End point assessment

  • Two hour practical observation followed by 15 minute Q & A session.
  • 90 minute professional discussion supported by a portfolio of evidence.
  • The apprentice can be awarded a pass or distinction.

Entry requirements

Employers will set selection criteria for their own apprenticeships, however these are typically 5 GCSEs, including maths and English, at grade C/4 or above, or equivalent qualifications.

 

Course Progression

  • Potential to progress into a number of career paths in the Educational sector including Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Assistant Teacher and Teacher.
