Apprenticeships in Schools

With apprenticeships everybody learns, everybody gains

Taking on an apprentice in a school environment gives you so much more than an additional teaching resource. Schools who take on an apprentice see an increase in the overall quality of teaching across the board.

Everybody learns.

Furthermore, the energy and development built into the apprenticeship programme spreads across the school, improving the diversity of teaching methods used throughout the curriculum as well as overall staff motivation.

Everybody gains.


We have a huge respect for your tutors and their professionalism when supporting our staff in school. The encouragement from Tutors to take the lead in sessions putting their learning into practice and the support they receive to do this is just fantastic.

Sustainable Support

An apprenticeship is a sustainable investment in teaching skills to improve your school

We provide a comprehensive service to make sure the apprenticeship works for you and the learner. We will guide you through access to relevant funding as well as giving you a safe and thorough recruitment service.

Together, we will develop the learning pathways within the apprenticeship standards to ensure the apprentice is given full in-post training and gains the relevant qualifications on completion.

School Apprenticeship standards include: 

Level 3 Teaching Assistant
Level 3 Sporting Excellence Professional
Level 4 Sports Coach
Level 5 Learning & Skills Tutor


Recruitment Reassurance

We make it our business to find the right apprentice for your school

We are a RoATP registered training provider, however our work starts way before the training begins. We make it our business to find the right apprentice for your school.

Our experience means you can rest assured we will support you and your apprentice through the entire journey from recruitment to completion.

This is all we have done since 1999 so we know how to ensure you and your apprentice get the most from the experience. We know where you need the most support and when we can take a step back and acknowledge that you are in charge.

While we work to the apprenticeship standards, we ensure the service we provide is bespoke to your school. So the support we give in recruitment, training and ongoing development is unique to you and your learning setting.

Get in touch

We know your school is unique, so let’s talk

At Ignite, we recognise that no two apprenticeships are the same. In fact, we actively make sure they aren’t because that’s how we make the apprentice fit the school.

It all begins with a conversation.

If you send us your details we will listen as you tell us what you want your school to achieve. We will then help you take on one of the most exciting teaching developments you will do this year.
