It is unlikely that individuals with no, or limited experience within the sector would commence on this degree apprenticeship.
In order to enrol onto an apprenticeship, you need to be employed in a relevant job role and undertake a range of tasks which would enable you to complete the apprenticeship qualification.
For the full apprenticeship, candidates will complete:
- Level 6 Teacher Apprenticeship Standard (Primary)
- Level 2 Functional Skills in English and Maths (if not already achieved or exempt)
Training and assessments are delivered in the workplace and in college. Apprentices will be required to attend college-based sessions as part of their training, whilst also completing off-the-job training in the workplace. You will also complete assessments and observations in the workplace.
At the end of the apprenticeship you will complete an End Point Assessment (EPA) which consists of:
- 45- 60- minute lesson observation (carried out with the teacher's main class or a regularly taught class), followed by a 15- minute professional dialogue with an independent assessor
- 60- minute professional discussion with an independent assessor
Successful apprentices may wish to explore further professional development through higher- level courses or apprenticeships.
Career or academic progression may include continuation, development or promotion at work or within the sector.
Apprenticeship course fees are subject to the age of the apprentice, and the size of the company.
For employers with less than 50 employees who do not pay the apprenticeship levy and who take on an apprentice who is aged between 16-18 at the start of their apprenticeship, there will be no direct cost and the full training costs will be covered by Government funding. If the apprentice is aged 19+ the government partially subsides the training costs and the employer will need to pay 5% of the costs. In the case of this course, the fee would be £450.
For an employer with more than 50 employees a 5% charge will be implemented regardless of the age of the apprentice which in this case would be £450.
A levy paying company will pay the full cost of the apprenticeship from their levy account which in this case would be £9,000.
Please note that course fees are to be paid by the employer and apprentices must not be asked to make a financial contribution toward their training.
