Every individual within the Hope Learning Trust now has the opportunity to develop professionally within their workplace through a new government initiative.
From April 2017, the Government has reformed the way apprenticeship training is offered and funded to create this new learning and development scheme. This forms part of the apprenticeship system in England that will enable all employers (including schools) to support the professional career development for existing staff as well as new recruits. This provides every individual within the Trust an opportunity to develop professionally within their workplace, depending on their job role and subject to approval from their line manager.
For teachers within the Trust there may be the chance to develop other skills outside of their core expertise, for example, in Leadership. For non-teaching staff, including teaching assistants, facilities, office support, finance and HR staff, there are a wide range of training programmes and qualifications available to enhance your career within the Trust.
There are a selection of training programmes from Level 2 to Level 6 (undergraduate degree) and 7 (Masters degree) along with nationally accredited training providers who will provide the service.
Anyone interested must discuss the opportunities with their line manager in the first instance, as they need to agree the training. Once this has been agreed, the expression of interest form needs to be completed and returned to the email address below.
Please note that acceptance onto the scheme will be subject to a manager’s approval, and availability of programmes. Demand is expected to be high, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested and need further information.
