About the programme
The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) makes it easy for schools to use their apprenticeship levy to train newly recruited trainees and existing employees to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Using your levy to pay for teacher training
The 1-year programme sees schools employ Teaching Apprentices and utilise apprenticeship funding for initial teacher training (ITT). After 9 months the graduate will achieve QTS and then complete their End-Point Assessment to pass the apprenticeship.
The training is funded via one of two routes:
Accessing salary grants
Schools can also reduce their staffing cost for existing employees as you can apply for a School Direct Teaching Apprenticeship grant towards their salary cost. The table below shows the grant that your school could receive depending on your location and subject taught:
|2019-2020 Subject Grants||National||Inner London||Outer London||Fringe|
|Chemistry, classics, computing, secondary mathematics, modern foreign languages, physics||£14,500||£19,400||£18,100||£15,700|
|Primary mathematics, biology, design and technology, English, geography, history, music, religious education||£9,500||£13,100||£12,100||£10,400|
Please note that Teaching Apprenticeships must be paid in accordance with at least point one on the unqualified teachers’ pay scale for the period of their training.
