The apprenticeship is a work-based qualification, which means that all of the training and assessment for the apprenticeship will be completed on-site. You will need to build an apprenticeship portfolio of evidence. Your regional trainer will observe you in the workplace and guide you on which pieces of work-based evidence are suitable for your portfolio.
Across the length of an apprenticeship you will be contacted by a regional trainer every three to five weeks and attend a number of workshops offsite.
You will have a meeting with your training and manager to determine whether you are ready for you End Point Assessment (EPA). The EPA is completed to assess the knowledge, skills and behaviours that you have learnt throughout the apprenticeship. You will practice parts of the EPA assessment throughout the apprenticeship and you will only take the final assessment when you feel ready. The content of the EPA will vary, depending on the course you are completing.
