Teaching Assistants work in Primary, Special and Secondary education across all age ranges
encompassing special educational needs and emotional vulnerabilities. The primary role of
the Teaching Assistant is to support the class teacher to enhance pupils’ learning either in
groups or individually, ensuring pupils understand the work set, know their learning
objectives and stay on task in order to make progress.

Promoting self-belief, social inclusion
and a high self-esteem play an integral part to pupils’ well-being; ensuring pupils thrive in a
positive, nurturing, safe environment. It is an active role supporting the learner to access
the curriculum. They are good role models, act with honesty and integrity, take part in team
meetings; contribute to planning and class activities. Promoting Fundamental British Values
through spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and positive behaviours are
crucial in contributing to improved pupil progress and development.

Entry Requirements:

Whilst any entry requirements will be a matter for individual employers, typically an
apprentice might be expected to have already achieved 5 GCSEs, including Maths and
English, Grade C or above or 4/5 (new grading). Some employers will accept other relevant
qualifications and experience, including a relevant Level 2 qualification.

Apprentices without English and Maths at Level 2 must achieve these prior to taking the
End Point Assessment.


As well as ensuring full competency as a Teaching Assistant, this standard provides a
foundation for potential progression into a number of career paths in the Educational
sector including Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Assistant Teacher and Teacher.
