Appropriately trained and deployed staff, supporting teaching and learning in schools, play a crucial role in supporting pupils, parents and colleagues. 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 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship is applicable to learning support staff whose responsibilities at work are closely supervised. The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship is applicable to learning support staff whose role requires competence across a range of responsibilities. The frameworks provide training for the roles of teaching, classroom and learning support assistant; special needs assistant; behaviour support assistant/coordinator; pastoral/welfare assistant; foundation stage assistant; team leader.
