Learning and Skills Teacher

The Learning and Skills Teacher is 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 (ETS) 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.

LST’s teach young people and adults within all parts of the ETS, including work based/independent training provisions; further, adult and higher education; offender-learning; and the voluntary sector. LTS’s are responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging, and that inspires learning to engage and achieve their full potential. LST’s collaborate closely with colleagues and other ETS professionals in supporting learner progress. LST’s ensure the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of learners.

  • Principles of effective programme design

  • Employers are also be eligible for a £1000 incentive payment if the apprentice is aged 16 – 18.
  • Employers with less than 50 employees and where the apprentice is aged 16 – 18, the government will fund 100% of the apprentice and are eligible for a £1000 incentive payment.
  • Employers with those aged 19+ the government will continue to fund 95% of the apprenticeship programme whilst a 5% investment is required by the employer.
