The Learner Journey
- 12 months on programme: This is when the individual will learn the skills, knowledge and behaviours which will support them for their end-point assessment. The apprentice will undertake a combination of activities, such as group and individual learning-based sessions, specialised mentoring, shadowing, bespoke resources and off-site visits in order to support their learning and development. Learners must also attend 20% of the job training.
- Gateway: After 12 months teaching and learning, you, your training provider and the learner will review the learners journey and decide whether it is the right time for the on-programme assessment.
- End-point assessment: This is when the learner will need to demonstrate they have learned the required knowledge, skills and behaviours, through a scenario-based knowledge test, a competency-based interview, an evidence-based portfolio and a professional discussion relating to the evidence of competence and achievement in the apprentice role.
