Inspiring people to succeed.

Get Paid, Get Qualified

Just one of the great things about an Apprenticeship in support teaching, is that you actually get to do the job right away. You get to experience:

  • Work in a teaching environment
  • Learn from teaching experts
  • Continually gain practical skills and experience
  • Earn while you learn

 

When you successfully complete your Support Teaching & Learning Intermediate Level Apprenticeship, you will qualify with a Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning. You will also have valuable functional skills, solid references, some great colleagues and positive experiences behind you.

An Apprenticeship really is what you make it and at Paragon Skills we are here to ensure that you get the most from it.

If I can do it I may inspire [my colleagues] to do a qualification and gain new knowledge too. I feel I am of value to my colleagues and it has built positive working relationships in my setting as I have built new relationships due to more experienced staff supporting me during the qualification.
