Education and Training Apprenticeships

About the Education and Training Sector

Education and Training is a varied career area that can span many areas of teaching and learning and can include various methods of education, from classroom based teaching, one-to-one mentoring and coaching learners to achieve their goals.

If you enjoy a constantly evolving profession, the education and training sector offers a unique opportunity to influence apprentices and develop new professional skills.

If you have excellent communication and presentation skills and are concerned with preserving the integrity of academic institutions and maintaining the wellbeing of the education sector, then a learning coach or learning mentor apprenticeship could be the best route for you.

How do you get into education and skills?

You do not always need academic qualifications to start training and working in Education and Training. However, there may be a requirement to have a good standard of general education such as GCSEs, including English, Maths and ICT.

Typical skills needed for education and training:

  • Adaptability; education techniques constantly change and develop.
  • Communication; you must be able to clearly articulate knowledge and be able to gauge understanding of knowledge.
  • Creative approaches to teaching.
  • Enthusiasm and passion for your occupation and motivate others to achieve success.
  • Organisation in order to manage a variety of tasks and facilitate learning.

Learning Mentor Level 3

With our Level 3 Learning Mentor apprenticeship standard, you will gain industry recognised skills. In addition to learning ‘on the job’ you will also learn how to mentor via a series of workshops throughout your apprenticeship. 

Learning Mentors support the development of learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviours, throughout their programme, particularly in applying theoretical learning in practical work environments (and usually on a one-to-one, or small group, basis). They give practical, technical and/or pastoral support and guidance.

  • Functional Skills Level 2 in ICT

  • End Point Assessment*

Length of Course – 13 months

*All apprentices have to complete an End Point Assessment (EPA):

  • The EPA is designed to allow you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding
  • It takes place once you, the employer and learning coach agree that you are ready
  • The assessment is carried out independently by a neutral centre and examiner
  • You get two opportunities to pass the EPA, and can achieve a pass, merit or distinction
  • If the attempts to pass are unsuccessful, you will unfortunately fail the entire apprenticeship
