First your school will need to identify if their Teachers Apprentice will focus on curriculum support, technical support or, as in most cases, both. Once you've decided to recruit a Teachers Apprentice, a job advert will be created with support from Primary Goal.
Primary Goal will filter applications received and will recommend a small number of candidates for the school to interview.
Once a candidate has been selected they will complete an online training programme designed to prepare the young person for working in a school. The school may also request the apprentice begins their role with a work experience position to ensure they are suitable for the school.
Tablet Academy support school leadership to identify a strategy for the use of technology within the school and align the responsibilities of the apprentice to help achieve these.
When the apprentice begins their 14 month programme, Primary Goal ( and Tablet Academy if enhanced programme) will support the school and apprentice to identify priorities and where the young person can have an impact.
Whilst in post at the school the apprentice will have access to remote support from Primary Goal for technical problems and curriculum support from Tablet Academy. The Apprentice will also attend a training day delivered by Tablet Academy one day per month.
On-site training and support from Tablet Academy experienced educators is provided in areas identified by the school. This may include staff training, experience days for students or further consultancy for leadership.
The apprenticeship lasts for 14 months. After this period the school can decide to employ the apprentice, to end the contract, or to recruit a new apprentice from Primary Goal.
