About the programme
The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) makes it easy for schools to use their apprenticeship levy to attract, recruit and train the best graduates as home-grown teachers.
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 Teaching Apprenticeship programme provides a comprehensive 360-degree solution taking care of both the recruitment and training arrangements for schools. Visit our training and delivery page to find our more.
Responding to year on year reductions in the number of UCAS applicants to Initial Teacher Training AND increased numbers of qualified teachers leaving the profession, the Teaching Apprenticeship route empowers schools to proactively attract, recruit and train graduates as trainee teachers. We believe this is the way forward for our partner schools to retain higher numbers of teachers for future generations.
The Teaching Apprenticeship programme includes a professional graduate recruitment service for schools. On joining the programme schools are required to specify their graduate vacancies to get started. Find out more about our Teaching Apprenticeship Programme here
The training is funded via one of two routes:
Employers that pay into the apprenticeship levy will be able to use up to £9,000 of funding from their apprenticeship service account to cover the cost of training and assessing the apprentice.
Employers that do not pay the levy, or who have insufficient funds in their digital account, can access funding to support the training and assessment of an apprentice. The government will pay 95% of the costs of training and assessment for the apprenticeship (up to the £9,000 apprenticeship funding band maximum).
