Matt Smith, Director of Digital Transformation and Jonathan Gerlach, Apprenticeship Manager

Aspire 2Be, a multi-award-winning learning technology company, this week announced the launch of the Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning Qualification. This qualification compliments the range of education-focussed Apprenticeships offered by Aspire 2Be, which also includes the Level 3 Diploma for Digital Learning Practitioners and ILM Leadership & Management for Educators qualifications.

The Supporting Teaching and Learning qualification is aimed at learning support staff, and is designed to further develop existing knowledge and skills, whilst also providing specific learning pathways to develop expertise across key areas of education. Learners will also develop a range of digital skills and explore how technology can play a central role in supporting a range of teaching and learning scenarios.

“The National Professional Learning Entitlement guidance from Welsh Government advocates for accredited, high quality professional learning available to all educators, including support staff,” comments Aspire 2Be Digital Transformation Director, Matt Smith.

He continues, “Our Supporting Teaching and Learning qualification provides a range of learning pathways, with a focus on the Additional Learning Needs Transformation programme alongside how to leverage technology to support teaching and learning. This latest apprenticeship ensures provision is available for existing support staff to continue their professional learning journey aligned to the new Curriculum for Wales”.
