FAQ’s

FAQ’s

Who is inspire+ and why are we qualified to deliver this training?
Inspire+ are a Sport and Education Charity based in Lincolnshire. The charity works with over 100 schools within the East of England. The charity employs an education team who lead and design the training the schools and apprentices receive. Assessors and tutors at inspire+ have extensive experience within PE, School Sport, Physical Activity and Community Sport. All inspire+ education team staff are qualified PE teachers or assessors with up to date industry experience.
What can a PESWB apprentice do in school?
An apprentice can be employed to improve/increase the amount of physical activity & support PE lessons each week as well as offering classroom support. Depending on previous experience of an apprentice it is often the case that the apprentice supports in a variety of capacities including pastoral and behaviour roles.
What is the minimum pay for an apprentice?
From April 2022 the National Minimum wage for apprentices will be £4.81 per hour regardless of age if it is their first apprenticeship year. Over the course of an academic year that would be approx. £7000 salary – please note this will rise with inflation every April.
What kind of contract is required?
Contracts offered are 40 hours per week. If a contract is below these hours per week the apprenticeship may need to be extended beyond 13 months. Apprentices must have a written contract in order to be enrolled onto the apprenticeship standard.
How long is the apprenticeship?
We recommend schools offer a minimum of a 13-month contract to factor in the End Point Assessment process.
When does the contract start?
The third week of August. We have listened to employer feedback and have decided to offer a week of off the job training before the apprentices start in your school. This will enable apprentices to be ‘school ready’. Training such as safeguarding, behaviour management and principles of coaching and teaching courses will be given during this time.
What qualifications does an apprentice need in order to be accepted onto the programme?
It is desirable for apprentices to have achieved at least a Grade 4 in Maths and English (or equivalent). If apprentices have not achieved this, they will need to undertake an initial assessment to deem whether they are able to be accepted onto the programme. If apprentices have not achieved this standard but are accepted onto the programme, they will need to commit to working towards Functional Skills Level 2 before completing their End Point Assessment.
What qualifications will apprentices gain?
The main qualification learners receive will be a Level 2 Community Activator Coach apprenticeship, this is a portfolio of evidence followed by an End Point Assessment towards the end of their training. Learners will also be offered a range of courses from UK coaching and Inspire+.
How is the training funded?
If your school pays into an apprenticeship levy all training fees will be paid for out of this. If your school does not pay into the apprenticeship levy, at least 95% of all course cost will be subsidised. 5% of the training costs for this apprenticeship amount to £300, this is dependent on the apprentice’s age and number of employees, the costs are often fully government funded – your apprentice advisor can provide more information.
When do I need to appoint an apprentice by?
Apprentices need to be appointed before the third week in August 2022. We will liaise with schools to support you with this process.
How many hours a day/week should they work?
Typically, apprentices work up to 8 hours per day – assisting with before and after school clubs as well as curriculum lessons. They will be in school for 4 days a week and at their training day 1 day per week.
What other support does inspire+ provide?
Inspire+ assessors will arrange progress reviews each term. During these reviews the apprentice mentor and the apprentice will have an opportunity to discuss progress and set targets. We work with schools to support this progress throughout the time of the apprenticeship. Employers have access to apprentices live progress updates via our online platform. Inspire+ also provides training and support for employer-based mentors who support apprentices whilst on programme.
How often will my apprentice need to attend training?
Your apprentice will need to attending training with inspire+ once a week. Each tutor group will have a designated day of the week for training so you can timetable your week for them around that day.
