Learning and Skills Teacher Apprenticeship Level 5
Many Learning and Skills Teachers are dual professionals drawing on their technical and vocational as well as academic experience and qualifications to provide a high-quality learning experience.
The broad purpose of the occupation is to ensure that students achieve the best possible knowledge, skills and behaviours. Learning and Skills Teachers do this by planning and delivering teaching that is current, comprehensive and challenging, and that inspires students to engage, progress and achieve their full potential.
- Competence in vocational and/or specialist subject at an appropriate level
- Confirmation of current vocational/specialist subject knowledge
- Up-to-date knowledge of workplace practice
- A willingness to continue to develop personal ICT skills to a level in-line with the LST role
- Reference to the Education and Training Foundations (2016) Minimum Core Guidance, and any other subsequent updates
- Apprentices without a Level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this prior to taking the end-point assessment. For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement the apprenticeship English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3 and British Sign Language qualification is an alternative to English qualifications for which this is a primary language.

On completion of this standard, you will have gained experience and knowledge in the following professional behaviours to become a skilled teacher:
- Maintain a focus on outcomes, for all students, so that they recognise the value of their learning and the future opportunities available to them
- Demonstrate, maintain and evidence excellent pedagogy, subject, curriculum and industry knowledge and practice

You will work towards gaining an apprenticeship standard. The apprenticeship standard contains a list of skills, knowledge and behaviours you will need to have learned by the end of your apprenticeship. Standards are occupation focused; they are not qualification-led. The learning happens throughout the apprenticeship and you are assessed at the end of your apprenticeship. It is at this point you will need to prove you can carry out all aspects of the job. This is called the end-point assessment (EPA).
