"I love Smart Training. Everyone there from the office staff to the tutors are fantastic."

The qualification

The Level 6 Teacher Apprenticeship offers a new and exciting way to improve support and skills development to new teachers at the start of their career in a variety of settings with pupils aged from four to 19.

The course

It will take 12 months to complete the standard on a part-time basis involving monthly study groups at a local training centre while being employed at a school. Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) will be achieved during your third term.

An Apprentice needs to be in training for at least a year and a day which equates to 1,560 hours – or 30 hours a week – of employment. It is expected that 20% of these hours are spent completing off the job training.

Subjects covered

The subject areas of the course aim to provide all the skills and competencies for teaching including:

• Planning and teaching of well-structured lessons
• Adapting teaching for strengths and needs of all pupils
• Managing behaviour
• Promoting good progression and outcomes by pupils
• Demonstrating good subject and curriculum knowledge.

Work & assessment

You'll find all the resources for your course on our Online Training Academy where you'll also be able to submit your work and follow your progress. Assessment is by workplace observations and assignment writing plus an end-point assessment which will be completed within the first term of your newly qualified teacher (NQT) year.

Entry requirements

The course is available to graduates after their initial teacher training.
