It typically takes 15 months to complete your apprenticeship, but this will vary depending on your experience and working pattern.
You will be allocated a Trainer Assessor, who will support you throughout the apprenticeship with regular monthly sessions. This is flexible to your requirements, however, contact is available and encouraged outside of this time so each apprentice receives the help they need. Trainer Assessors make good use of digital platforms to support this.
Workshops are available for groups and can be managed with employers at enrolment.
- New knowledge, skills and behaviours’ are delivered and assessed by your Trainer Assessor with the support of your employer
- 20% off the job training is a mandatory requirement for all apprenticeship standards
- You will complete a Level 2 in maths and English, if applicable
The gateway is the opportunity for the provider and employer to agree whether the apprentice is ready and ready to take their end point assessment (EPA).
End Point Assessment
The end point assessment is synoptic and takes place at the end of the apprentice’s learning and development. The requirement is that the end point assessment is completed within three months from the start of the end point assessment period. The end point assessment is made up of the following components:
- A practical observation in the workplace
- A work-based project, supported by an interview
- A professional discussion supported by portfolio evidence
