Course Overview

There are no great schools without great teachers, and no other profession is as important in shaping the lives of the next generation and future generations to come. The aim of the Teacher Apprenticeship is to give learners the knowledge skills and behaviours of the National Teaching Standards, and the ability to educate young people to achieve the highest possible standards.
Teachers demonstrate consistently high standards of personal and professional conduct; have strong subject knowledge; keep their knowledge and skills as teachers up-to-date and are self-critical; forge positive professional relationships and work with parents/guardians in the best interests of their pupils.
Teachers can be employed in a variety of settings across England. Teachers make the education of their pupils their first concern and are accountable for achieving the highest possible standards in work and conduct.
This is a school based role, and could be in the primary, special or secondary education sector teaching pupils from 3-19 years.
