We have a TA apprentice level 2 who is coming to the end of their one year course. The school has a vacancy for a TA to cover maternity and want to know if they have to give it to this apprentice. They haven't performed at a great level but will pass the course. They are on a fixed term contract for one year.
I've not worked with many apprentices before so am unsure of the risk of not keeping them on.
