Learning and skills teacher

Teach young people and adults and be responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging

A learning and skills teacher is ‘dual-professional’, having first become an expert in a vocation or subject and then subsequently trained as a teacher. This means that many teachers begin teaching as a second, or even later, career. This role is pivotal to the success of traineeship and apprenticeship programmes, in delivering effective vocational education and training that meets both learners’ and employers’ needs. As a learning and skills teacher, you’ll teach young people and adults and be responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging, and that inspires learners to engage and achieve their full potential. You’ll collaborate closely with colleagues and other professionals in supporting learner progress. You’ll also ensure the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of learners.
