Learning Support Apprentice – Audley.
Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning Apprenticeship
Could this be the perfect opportunity for you to take the first step on the ladder of your teaching career?
Would you like to help people learn whilst working towards a nationally recognised qualification?
This apprenticeship will be hands-on, challenging, and will stretch you to your limits but most importantly it will be fun and exciting and will develop so many important skills for your future.
We are looking for people aged 18+ to support learners with Special Educational Needs(SEN), many of whom demonstrate challenging behaviors.
You’ll be based at our education facility in Shelton Stoke on Trent, whereby you’ll work alongside an Inclusive Education Practitioner (IEP) to support students. During term time you’ll be part of a team delivering a bespoke package of education to SEN learners on a day-to-day basis including basic academic subjects plus regular opportunities to work in the outdoors delivering enrichment sessions(eg, mountain biking, climbing, water sports, etc). The balance of academic:outdoor activity is dependent on each learner’s capability and level of engagement.
Your IEP (who may have started their journey as an apprentice themselves) will take the lead in managing the learner’s progress and will support your development whilst you assist them in learning delivery. Our aim is that you’ll follow in their footsteps at the end of your apprenticeship programme! Outside term time you’ll have time to concentrate on your Level 3 coursework. You will need a flexible outlook and a willingness to learn new things and take on new challenges.
What we offer you:
= Level 3 Diploma in Supporting Teaching and Learning
= Functional Skills Maths level 1, English level 2 if required
= Employee Rights and Responsibilities
= Personal learning and thinking skills
= The possibility of a permanent role upon completion of the apprenticeship and the opportunity to progress into an Inclusive Education Practitioner role.
Dependent on the individual you will be supporting and how often they will participate in outdoor activities, there may be an opportunity to work towards two nationally recognised outdoor activity qualifications.
What we need from you:
= You must be age 18 or over
= Maths and English GCSE grade A-C, (original qualification certificates must be presented to gain course entry)
= You will need good ICT skills
= You must be willing to undergo a DBS check
= Subject to 2 satisfactory references being obtained
= Be happy to commit to apprenticeship training requirements (lasting up to 18 months) which will include self-study both during and outside your working hours.
= Be happy to commit to training for additional outdoor activity qualifications which may require you to attend outside working hours.
= A flexible attitude and ability to communicate with young people of a variety of backgrounds.
= You need a positive attitude and enthusiasm for the outdoors!
= The desire to help others learn, motivate, and support others to recognise and achieve their potential.
We hope you will want to stay with us after your apprenticeship and apply to become one of our respected Inclusive Education Practitioners..
Job Type: Full-time (44 weeks per year – includes 38 term time weeks and 6 additional training weeks during half terms and at each end of the academic summer break)
