Views sought on draft apprenticeship standard for Teaching Assistants

Association of Employment and Learning Providers

The trailblazer responsible for the development of apprenticeship standards for teaching assistants in schools is seeking the views of headteachers and providers delivering programmes in schools on the following subject:

"Do you want the new apprenticeship standards for Teaching Assistants to include a qualification as a mandatory component?"

If yes, should this be the existing Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Skills?
