National Apprenticeship Week 2023 – Teaching Assistant Apprentice Testimonials

Posted 29th March 2023

This National Apprenticeship Week we spoke to two recent passes from our Apprenticeship programme! Both of these wonderful learners have been working at local Primary Schools, gaining experience on the job while they learned with us. Being an Apprentice is an incredibly rewarding accomplishment, and we love to see our learners succeeding. Check out these Teaching Assistant Apprentice Testimonials below!

Laura McGough

Teaching Assistant Apprentice

Laura just passed her Teaching Assistant EPA with us on Monday whilst working at Brampton Primary School.

How have you found working with Brampton Primary?
Brampton Primary has been a brilliant school to complete my apprenticeship with. The staff have been extremely supportive and I’ve never felt scared to ask a question.

How have you found the support from System People?
Absolutely amazing towards the end of my apprenticeship and super helpful on the lead up to my EPA. I have felt as though the sessions were full of information and that helped me complete all assignments.

What did you enjoy about learning with System People?
I enjoyed the discussion within the cohort and comparing our different job roles to help us complete assignments.

Were there any standout lessons/days with System People?
When we practiced our EPA questions with each other and had the opportunity to discuss the pass and distinction criteria with our tutor.

What are your plans going forward?
Currently staying at Brampton Primary until Easter while also applying for other Teaching Assistant jobs in Carlisle.

Congratulations, Laura! We are so proud of all the hard work you put in and wish you all the luck in your future endeavours.

Leah Murphy

Teaching Assistant Apprentice

Leah has recently passed her TA Apprenticeship whilst working at Yewdale Primary School. We caught up with her to find out how she found working and learning with us!

What has it been like working at Yewdale?
Yewdale Primary School have been completely supportive throughout my apprenticeship. All the staff have been super helpful with any questions I had.

How have you found the support from System People?
System People are a fantastic training provider. Sarah, my tutor, was always available to give support on assignments and prepared me for my End Point Assessment.

What did you enjoy about learning with System People?
I enjoyed the discussion between other apprentices and how open everyone was to share their experiences. The staff were also very supportive and answered all my questions.

What are your plans going forward?
I have been offered a job at Yewdale and plan to stay there whilst doing an access course to get into university.

Congratulations to Leah for passing her Apprenticeship and good luck for the future!
