New webinar introduces apprenticeships designed for LA schools and nurseries in Portsmouth

Local authority nurseries and schools are set to benefit from a new webinar about apprenticeships for staff on Tuesday 4 May from 4pm – 5pm.

With recent changes in funding for teacher training in primary settings, a new apprenticeship route is now available to fund teacher QTS. The webinar is designed for senior leaders, administrative or HR teams who oversee staff development and training.

The webinar agenda will cover a range of topics including:

  • the changes to primary DfE funding for teacher training in 2021/2022
  • apprenticeship funding for teacher QTS
  • development opportunities for existing staff to include apprenticeships with National Professional Qualification certificates
  • pay incentive of £2,100 available to local authority nursery & schools for each new apprentice recruited from 1 April to 30 September 2021

After the main webinar presentation, breakout rooms will be available for specific apprenticeship discussions. For more information on the webinar, colleagues are asked to email [email protected] in the first instance to register their interest.
