This Level 3 Teaching Assistant is a great way to kick-start your career in the education sector. Whether you are just out of school/college or looking for a new challenge, as long as you have bags of motivation and enthusiasm, as well as a genuine desire to make a difference to a young person’s life, this role apprenticeship is for you! As an apprentice Teaching Assistant (TA) in Progress Schools, you will develop a range of education skills, whilst earning a full wage. No previous qualifications or experience is needed for this TA Apprenticeship.

Working as a Teaching Assistant is one of the most rewarding roles you can do. At Progress Schools, they can offer a varied experience compared to working in a mainstream school. The opportunity to make a difference to the lives of young people in alternative provision could be perfect for you!

Progress Schools provide opportunities for children who need a safe space outside of the home and who need adults around them who provide both a nurturing, encouraging and supportive environment. A TA role in an alternative provision school means no two days are ever the same! You could be supporting 1-1 in a classroom, helping the teacher with group maths, English or vocational lessons, as well as guiding and mentoring young people to successfully manage their learning with the aim of returning to mainstream education.
