The Course

This is for those teaching particularly in an Further Education or independent training provider educational setting, teaching those aged 14 years and upwards.

Apprentices may be teaching technical and vocational subjects. A Learning and Skills Teacher needs to have a sound understanding of pedagogy and regularly engage with robust evidence of effective teaching and learning methods and practice relevant to their subject area(s).

Upon completion of the course, apprentices will undertake an End Point Assessment (EPA) to complete their apprenticeship.

  • Contact Time

    Apprentices undertaking the course (which lasts approximately 18 - 24 months) develop existing skills through six hours of off the job training. 

    Apprentices enhance their skills and knowledge of pedagogy within taught sessions which currently take place one day per week (Tuesday). Delivery may be between our Bishop Burton campus in East Yorkshire and our Riseholme College campus in Lincolnshire.

  • Learning and Teaching Approach

    The course is delivered using online portfolios, distanced activities and face to face contact.

  • How You're Assessed

    The assessment uses a mixture of assignments, portfolio building, professional discussion and research activities.

    On completion of the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence and off the job hours the apprentice will be at Gateway. End point assessments comprise a presentation, observation, reflection and professional discussion, which will be measured against the LST standards.
