Inclusive Learning Partner ( Apprenticeship) job summary

Inclusive Learning Partner Apprentices (ILPAs) will work alongside the classroom teacher to deliver the appropriate bespoke support to children who need it. At times this may be giving one to one support but for the majority of the time they work with small groups of similar learners. Our school, and our Trust, has a long tradition of developing teaching & learning talent from the earliest stages of careers. Our support staff are pivotal in ensuring that our children maximise their learning experiences on a daily basis.

Traditionally in Primary schools, support staff have either been Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) or Teaching Assistants (TAs). At Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust, we are breaking new ground to recognise the changed environment that our support staff now work in. The national increase in children with a wide range of additional needs demands that we change how we work. With that in mind, we have created this training opportunity for an Inclusive Learning Partner apprenticeship.

Inclusive Learning Partner Apprentices (ILPAs) will work alongside the classroom teacher to deliver the appropriate bespoke support to children who need it. At times this may be giving one to one support but for the majority of the time they work with small groups of similar learners.

We have partnered with BeReady, one of the largest delivery partners for apprenticeships in the UK, to provide a fabulous programme that spans two academic years. The core element is a 15 month in-school curriculum which focuses on the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours required of an ILP. These include:

  • An overview of each area of SEND including the process from identification of needs through to EHCP and outline of school level support

  • How to contribute to the overall ethos and aims of the organisation and promote diversity, inclusion, equality, and acceptance of all learners, including different models of inclusion, concrete examples of differentiation and personalisation in practice

  • Understanding how pupils learn and develop including the need to provide feedback to support and facilitate an appropriate level of independence

  • Recognise the importance of using appropriate technology to support learning

  • Understanding the stages of development for children and young people. Consider the impact of transition on learners and strategies to support them as well as the vulnerability of young people with SEND

  • Supporting the development of a stimulating and safe learning environment by developing knowledge of appropriate learning resources and how to adapt communication strategies to suit the audience and context
