About Teaching Apprenticeship Programme
The Teaching Apprenticeship programme provides a fee-free, salaried route for graduates to enter the teaching profession and gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) within 1 year. You will be employed by the school for a minimum of 12 months during your Initial Teacher Training (ITT). After 3 terms you will achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and then complete a final assessment, known as an End-Point Assessment, to pass the apprenticeship. Your training will be delivered by a DfE approved ITT provider. Teaching Apprentices are paid in line with at least point one on the unqualified teachers? pay scale. Opportunities are available throughout England in mainstream, special needs and independent schools. You are able to train to teach in primary and secondary age ranges. The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme can support graduates who have school experience and also those without.
