Learning and Skills Teacher – Apprenticeship (Standard)

The Learning and Skills Teacher (LST) is ‘dual-professional’, having first achieved competence in a vocational or subject specialism and then subsequently trained as a teacher. This means that many teachers in the Education and Training Sector (ETS) begin teaching as a second, or even later, career.

As an LST, you will learn about work-based/independent training provision; further, adult and higher education; offender-learning; and the voluntary sector. LSTs are responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging, and that inspires learners to engage and achieve their full potential.

During this apprenticeship, awarded by the University of Plymouth, you will be required to learn the following knowledge, skills and behaviours:

– Principles of effective programme design.
– Principles of effective learning.
– Principles of individualised learning.
– Quality assurance within the education context.

– How to plan learning (meeting programme requirements, ensuring activities are authentic & to encourage learners to develop).
– How to design and deliver learning sessions and activities.
– How to facilitate Individualised Learning.
– How to quality assure outcomes for learners.

– Operate at all times to ethical and legal standards and within professional boundaries.
– Value diversity and actively promote equality of opportunity and inclusion.
– Be resilient and adaptable when dealing with challenge and change, maintaining focus and self-control.
– Promote a passion for learning and high expectations of all learners.
– Model exemplary communication skills with learners and in all professional relationships.
– Be a role model for the effective use of current, digital and mobile technologies in support of teaching and learning.
