This apprenticeship is for those wishing to become a teacher in the Further Education and Skills Sector.
Learners will gain a nationally recognised Level 5 qualification within the Further Education and Skills Sector (16 years +) by learning the theory and the craft of teaching in a real world environment supported by professionals with over 40 years of teaching experience at an establishment that started teacher training in the 1940’s!
The Learning and Skills Teacher (LST) is ‘dual-professional’, having first achieved competence in a vocational or subject specialism and then subsequently trained as a teacher. This means that many teachers in the Education and Training Sector (ETS) begin teaching as a second, or even later, career. The LST role is pivotal to the success of traineeship and apprenticeship programmes, in delivering effective vocational education and training that meets both learners’ and employers’ needs.
A Learning and Skills Teacher will teach young people and adults within all parts of the ETS, including: work based/independent training provision; further, adult and higher education; offender-learning; and the voluntary sector. LSTs are responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging, and that inspires learners to engage and achieve their full potential. LSTs collaborate closely with colleagues and other ETS professionals in supporting learner progress. LSTs ensure the physical, psychological and social well-being of learners.
