The Level 3 Teaching Assistant standard is typically an 18-month apprenticeship aimed at supporting a class teacher to enhance pupils’ learning either as a whole class or individually.

Apprentices will learn to ensure pupils thrive in a positive, nurturing, and safe environment while ensuring pupils understand the work set, know their learning objectives and stay on task in order to make progress.

The apprenticeship is taught by our qualified tutors who have experience in management, leadership and the sport sector to ensure the learning is tailored to the sport and physical activity environment. The programme is delivered through a series of face to face group sessions at the Sports Structures office in Birmingham or another suitable venue as well as visits to the employer’s workplace and remote sessions as required. Apprentices are given resources to support them through the apprenticeship and additional e-learning modules are included in the delivery plan to enhance a learner’s knowledge and understanding.

Apprentices must be employed for the duration of the apprenticeship and work at least 30 hours per week for their employer with 20 per cent of their time allocated to ‘off the job’ training. The apprentices will be assessed via an end point assessment which includes a practical coaching observation, a presentation with questions and answers and a panel interview to ensure they have gained the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to achieve the community activator coach standard.
