PE and school sport apprenticeships

pe and school sport apprenticeships

All around the country PE departments in schools are utilising apprentices to assist and help motivate their PE sessions. Shooters Hill Sixth Form College is proud to announce that we are assisting schools fulfil their need via our sport apprenticeship programme.

"It's been great to work and study in such an inspiring school-based PE role"

Teaching Assistant apprentices are our future sports coaches, PE Teachers and activity organisers.  They all have ambition and aspirations that motivate them to give 100% whilst working at your school and studying in class.
Each apprentice is screened through a recruitment and selection process, before being recommended to schools for their own school-based apprenticeship interview.

Frequently Asked Questions

What benefits will they bring my school? 

Some members of the GSSP have been enjoying the benefits of teaching assistant apprentices for over a year now. These are some of the benefits they have enjoyed:

  • Apprentices have planned and lead intra-school sports competitions across a range of year groups.
  • Apprentices have helped deliver breakfast / after-school sport and exercise clubs that have enriched the PE curriculum offer.
  • Apprentices have helped increase confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Apprentices have helped support daily exercise programmes outside of PE, such as ‘The Daily Mile’.
  • Apprentices have assisted with the planning and delivery of PE lessons within classes that require an extra focus on developing physical literacy.

Are they vetted before they arrive? 

All apprentices are DBS check and undergo training and assessments before they are sent out to schools to work with pupils. They complete safeguarding training and a sports-based induction within the first few weeks of their placement. 

Will there be a cost to my school? 

Funding for training will be accessed through your school's apprenticeship levy. There will be no additional cost to your school for training - the only cost applicable to your school will be the salary paid to the apprentice, which is approximately £800 per month.

How much Supervision will they require? 

While at your school apprentices will operate as normal members of staff. They will work diligently and hold any responsibility bestowed to them.
