Providing Teaching Apprenticeship training to support employers to build a qualified and skilled workforce.
Innovative Alliance work closely with employers to create a comprehensive work-based learning training programme for apprentices – whether they are an existing employee or a new recruit. Our Teaching Apprenticeship up-skills a range of job roles, such as Teaching Assistants, Learning Mentors, Learning Support Assistants, Specialist Support Assistants and other more specialist curriculum positions.
Take the pressure off teaching staff and improve workplace morale by hiring an apprentice who can undertake duties that will free up their time for teaching, such as preparing the classroom for lessons, making resources and creating displays of children’s work. Apprenticeships can support employers to close the skills gaps and build a qualified workforce. According to Government statistics, 86% of employers said apprenticeships helped them develop skills relevant to their organisation and 78% of employers said apprenticeships helped them improve productivity.
