Hiring or upskilling existing staff

Hiring or upskilling existing staff

Hiring or upskilling staff through apprenticeship training is a productive and effective way for any organisation to grow its own talent and to develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce and this is true for schools too.

The benefits are limitless. Schools across England have said:

  • Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to access training and for developing staff.
  • Training can be adapted to meet the contextual and specific needs of your school
  • Apprenticeship training boosts staff morale, increases engagement and motivation.
  • Staff feel valued by the significant investment in their professional development.

Nationally all organisations have said:

  • 86% of employers said apprentices developed skills directly relevant to their workplace
  • 78% reported improved performance as a result of training.
  • 90% of apprentices stay on in their place of work.

By investing in apprenticeships for your school workforce you are showing your entire school community – pupils, teachers, parents and governors – that you invest in the continuous improvement of your staff and that apprenticeships are a credible way to progress careers.

Education Pathways, part of Ebor Academy Trust, currently provides the following apprenticeship programmes:


Our fast growing apprenticeship programme has been awarded Ofsted’s maximum ‘Significant Progress’ in all three judgement areas in its spring 2021 monitoring inspection – a rare achievement only shared by between five and ten per cent of training providers across the country.
