Job Details

If you have a passion for education, are able to help support opportunities for learning and progress whether inside or out come rain, hail or shine and love working as part of a team, you could be the person we are looking for!

As a Learning Support Assistant Apprentice you will support teaching staff in the development and education of pupils, including the provision of specialist skills as appropriate. 

You will complete a Level 3 Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship Standard.  You may also be required to complete English and maths functional skills (depending on existing qualifications). Further information about the apprenticeship programme can be found here: 

Your Trainer will meet with you in the workplace every 4 weeks. In between these meetings you will have dedicated time away from your job to work on the apprenticeship and collate evidence for your apprenticeship e-portfolio with ongoing support from your Manager and Trainer.

This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job, with real variety, from day one whilst working towards a qualification. The successful candidate will have excellent people and communication skills and will be flexible to adapt to changing situations. 

To be eligible for the Apprenticeship, applicants must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship. Please note: applicants must not have already completed a Level 3 Teaching Assistant apprenticeship.

Please note: AET has their own in house apprenticeship scheme and do not work with any other training providers to deliver Apprenticeships.

Tamworth Enterprise College is based in Staffordshire, which is within easy commuting distance of Birmingham and Derby. We are on a journey to rapidly improve the quality of teaching and learning across the school, to impact positively on student outcomes.

“Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better”

About our School

Principal: Mr Simon Turney

This is a very caring school where staff and students feel highly valued. This ethos is largely responsible for the good behaviour and the strong relationships that exist between staff and students in the school. One student captured the views of many in stating that, 'Teachers are always prepared to go the extra mile in order to help us.'

Tamworth Enterprise College is an 11-16 Academy sponsored by the AET which provides an excellent educational service for its local community. Student's prior attainment covers the entire ability range and high levels of aspiration are encouraged to ensure all students achieve at and beyond their potential. We are a forward thinking school which works extremely hard to provide the best opportunities for teaching and learning which have been recognised by inspectors as being of a good standard. The welfare of staff and students is paramount and the stability and cohesiveness of the staff supports the notion that Tamworth Enterprise College puts people first.

Catchment Area:

The catchment area draws from the Belgrave, Glascote and Stoneydelph wards located in the southern part of the town close to the M42. Over the years, Tamworth has grown and developed into a thriving town attracting, many big names in the retail and leisure industry and consequently, road, rail and leisure facilities in the town are excellent.

The college has excellent links with feeder schools and is acknowledged for its specialism in Science and Mathematics.
