To successfully complete the apprenticeship, you will need both maths and English at grade 2 or above, or Functional Skills Level 1. If necessary, these can be studied at College alongside your apprenticeship.

You will build a portfolio of work and workplace assessors will be in regular contact to provide support, and to arrange onsite visits to observe your ability and skills in your daily role. It is important for you to take ownership of your own learning by seeking out opportunities to gain new skills on the job with your employer. Learning in college will be delivered through a mixture of classes, work-related activities and independent study and research.

Your assessor will liaise with you to set up mutually convenient times for consultation and assessment visits at your place of work. You will spend 6 hours of your apprenticeship working towards your off-the-job learning which can consist of college attendance, homework/coursework, project related work, employer training, mentoring, and coaching – plus a number of other tasks (more information can be shared).

Your final grade will be determined by collective performance in an endpoint assessment.
