Course Content

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
  • Plan, deliver and evaluate effective evidence informed teaching using assessment, relevant systems and safe use of technology to support learning
  • Work in a manner that values diversity, and actively promote equality of opportunity and inclusion by responding to the needs of all students
  • Model professional relationships with students, colleagues and stakeholders that support the highest quality education and training
  • Work within professional boundaries, legal and ethical standards to set clear expectations for engaging in learning for all students
  • Undertake relevant roles and duties and model sustainable practices, having regard to professional standards, demonstrating resilience and adaptability when dealing with challenge and change
  • Support students with their next steps for progression and learning by providing appropriate information, advice, and guidance


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).
