What's Involved

Employers have helped to design these revised Apprenticeships to support the increasing demand for trained support staff in schools, attract new people to the sector, upskill the workforce and replace those who leave or retire. The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship is applicable to learning support staff whose role requires competence across a range of responsibilities.

The Advanced Level Apprenticeship is designed for learning support staff with a working role which requires competence in a specialist area and/or across a varied range of responsibilities. They will be working under the direction of a teacher who has overall responsibility for teaching and learning in the classroom. They will contribute to planning, implementing and evaluating learning activities and will work alongside the teacher to support whole class activities, as well as working on their own with individual, or groups of, pupils.

The duration of this apprenticeship is generally 18-24 months and you will be required to attend college 1 day per week.

This is a Level 3 Apprenticeship.

Employment opportunities exist within primary, special and secondary schools in both the state and independent sectors.

Opportunities also exist to move into other roles across the wider children's workforce e.g., child care, play work or youth work. Dependant on the specialist optional units taken, a range of specialist roles may be open to the apprentice.

At the end of your apprenticeship, the college will work with you and your employer to help you go on to the next level of training or gain full-time employment, either with your current employer or another employer the college has access to. The skills, knowledge and qualification you will gain from your apprenticeship means that Havering College can help you get to the level employers are looking for.

Course Assessment Method

You will be assessed using a range of methods such as; Direct observation of tasks or activities, examination of work products produced by learners (e.g. diary notes, site notes, completed reports), examination of witness testimonies from people, other than the assessor, who are prepared to provide statements detailing specific details of learners’ performance, review of records of ‘question and answer’ sessions covering specific aspects of the knowledge and understanding and Professional discussion. All of these assessment methods will build your portfolio of evidence.
