Our Supporting Teaching and Learning Qualifications

During this time of uncertainty whilst the current Apprenticeship Frameworks and the new Apprenticeship Standards take hold, we have listened to our centres and made the decision to extend our current provision which will run alongside our new Supporting Teaching and Learning suite until such time as the Apprenticeship Frameworks are closed. Therefore the following qualifications have been extended to reflect the expected end date of the Apprenticeship Frameworks for Supporting Teaching and Learning, these qualifications will be extended until 31st August 2020.

We have decided that to ensure progression to the apprenticeship and to provide stepping off points, should these be necessary, to extend the whole of our current suite of Supporting Teaching and Learning qualifications.

We hope you will agree this gives you choice when deciding the best routes for your learners.

Current suite:

  • NCFE CACHE Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools (500/9964/4)
  • NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (501/0031/2) apprenticeship qualification
  • NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (500/9963/2)
  • NCFE CACHE Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (500/9745/3)
  • NCFE CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support Work for Teaching and Learning in Schools (501/0476/7) apprenticeship qualification

Centres offering apprenticeships should always refer to the named qualifications within the Framework.

If you are not taking the Supporting Teaching and Learning qualifications as part of an apprenticeship you can choose from any of our Supporting Teaching and Learning suite.

Our New suite as listed below has the benefit of a Level 1 Award and also a Level 4 Certificate, this along with the extension of our current provision gives you a wide choice of qualifications within the Supporting Teaching and Learning suite to choose from.
