Spotlight on Teaching Assistant Level 3

The Teaching Assistant Level 3 apprenticeship pathway has been used by a rising number of Norfolk schools since 2019, with many using this route for multiple members of staff as well as returning year on year to use the qualification.

The primary role of the Teaching Assistant is to support the class teacher to enhance pupils’ learning either in groups or individually, ensuring pupils understand the work set, know their learning objectives and stay on task in order to make progress.

The Teaching Assistant Level 3 apprenticeship is an 18-month qualification which is being completed alongside the day-to-day work. Every apprentice is given 20% of their paid hours by their employer for off-the job training and study time.
