Offering an apprenticeship is a great way to train staff and for your organisation to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge.
Whether you’re a headteacher in a primary or secondary school needing new staff to support teachers in the classroom, a training provider looking for mentors to support adult learners or an organisation needing to support staff learning in the workplace, an apprenticeshipwill ensure your employee can perform their job role, whatever areas they work in.
With two apprenticeship programmes on offer – teaching assistant and learning mentor–apprentices will learn the necessary skills and knowledge to support learners of all ages and abilities in a range of educational and workplace settings.
Apprentices will combine working for your organisation with studying at college. In the workplace they will learn on-the-job by working alongside existing staff, whilst at college they will be taught by tutors who have many years of working in the industry themselves.
What’s more, both you and the apprentice will be supported throughout the training by a college assessor who will visit the workplace to make sure your apprentice is meeting their targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training.
The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!
And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
