The apprenticeship requires development of the following professional behaviours, skills and knowledge:

  • Operate at all times to ethical and legal standards and within professional boundaries.
  • Value diversity and actively promote equality of opportunity and inclusion.
  • Be resilient and adaptable when dealing with challenge and change, maintaining focus and self-control.
  • Promote a passion for learning and high expectations of all learners.
  • Model exemplary communication skills with learners and in all professional relationships.
  • Be a role model for the effective use of current, digital and mobile technologies in support of teaching and learning.
  • Underpin their practice by reference to professional standards and evidence-based teaching and learning.

  • Competence in vocational and/or specialist subject at an appropriate level.
  • Confirmation of current vocational/specialist subject knowledge.
  • Up to date knowledge of workplace practice.
  • A willingness to continue to develop personal ICT skills to a level in-line with the LST role.

Who it's for:

The Learning and Skills Teacher (LST) is a ‘dual-professional’, having first achieved competence in a vocational or subject specialism and then subsequently trained as a teacher.

This means that many teachers in the Education and Training Sector begin teaching as a second, or even later, career. The LST role is pivotal to the success of traineeship and apprenticeship programmes, in delivering effective vocational education and training that meets both learners’ and employers’ needs.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training or equivalent
  • Level 2 Safeguarding
  • Apprentices without Level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the end point assessment.
