Apprenticeships

At Woodlands Academy we are committed to promoting education opportunities for all staff members.

As part of our pledge we have set up an Apprenticeship Scheme for Teaching Assistants. This exciting venture provides Apprentices with personalised in house training from specialist teaching staff. It is an opportunity for Apprentices to experience “real work” in a structured and supportive environment.

What’s in it for you?
