Entry Requirements

To apply for the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools there are no mandatory entry requirements for this Apprenticeship framework. However, Employers are looking to attract applicants who have a keen interest in the Children’s education. Applicants must demonstrate a “can do" attitude and have good numeracy and literacy skills on which the Apprenticeship will build.

Students considering this framework should be suitable to work safely with children and young people and will be required to undergo an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS).

You will be required to undertake initial assessments in Maths and English.  To be an apprentice you need to be working a minimum of 30 hours per week in the related occupation of your chosen apprenticeship and be at least 16 years old.  Our Skills Coaches and Careers team can support you with this and we often have a good selection of employers looking to recruit an apprentice.
