How will I be assessed?

As an apprentice you will complete a development programme which will prepare you for the end-point assessment (EPA). This on-programme development phase will typically take 18 months to complete. You will complete a Learning Journal which your employer will finally sign off - confirming the demonstration of competence against the skills, knowledge and behaviours across the apprenticeship standard. Your learning journal will be submitted to an End-point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) and you will undertake two separate assessments - one being a project with a professional discussion, and other being a presentation and Q and A based on your learning journal, that taken together will synoptically test knowledge, practical skills and industry behaviours in an integrated way at the end of the apprenticeship.

Entry requirements
