Learning support apprenticeship

Learning support apprenticeship

Learning Support practitioners work in a variety of roles providing opportunities to help people to learn, achieve and make progress within their workplace or in educational settings and other environments.

Learning support can mean general help with education or skills, or more specialised support for disabled or deaf learners, or anyone who needs help with literacy, language and numeracy.

The difference that this level of support makes to learner achievement is increasingly recognised by employers, enabling them to play a key role in the development of individuals and to tailor their learning programmes to meet the specific needs of an organisation.

This apprenticeship offers an entry route into learning support occupations. It will also enable career progression to more senior roles, and to higher-level training and qualifications.

As an apprentice you will work under guidance to provide learning opportunities that promote achievement and progression. You will provide learning support for both individuals and groups, helping them to reach their goals whatever their needs or settings.

You might choose to train as a general learning support practitioner, or opt to work in a more specialised role offering support to those who need specific help with literacy, language and numeracy learning, or helping deaf or disabled learners with their communication or learning needs.

After completing your apprenticeship you might have the opportunity to move into a role as an educational interpreter or senior learning support practitioner, or to take further qualifications in, for example, learning and development, advice and guidance or coaching and mentoring.
