Methods of Learning
Your job role will be your main source of learning. Your manager will be fully consulted about the type of work you will need to carry out and this will form part of your job role assessment.
Facilitated workshops that are a mixture of taught sessions, group work, and allocated time to work on your apprenticeship.
One-to-one meetings with your assessor to discuss and reflect on your work and experiences. Reviews to understand your progress, discuss any issues or concerns and assess your personalised learning needs to ensure that you are reaching your potential.
Set work which requires independent research such as using online resources, library or discussing subjects with managers/colleagues. Resources will be available for you to access.
Off-the-job training. You will need to have 20% per week of off the job training to complete your apprenticeship.
During your enrolment, your assessor will carry out a skills scan. Your assessor will ask you about any previous qualifications you may have.
The skills scan results are used to tailor and personalise your apprenticeship programme.
Your assessor will account for your current levels of skills and knowledge to understand your starting point for the apprenticeship.
When assessing how your current skills level should inform your apprenticeship, your assessor will talk to you to about how you have applied any previously gained knowledge and reflected on it.
The assessor will consider the knowledge you have and how it can count towards the relevant area of the apprenticeship. It may be that you have gained the knowledge but want to develop further competency in the subject.
Your previously acquired knowledge and skills can also be a basis for driving you to achieve a higher level of achievement in the area.
In summary, the skills scan and assessment is to ensure you will not duplicating any current knowledge.
