The apprenticeship is a work-based qualification. Your learning coach will observe you through teaching sessions face-to-face or virtually and support you in building an apprenticeship portfolio of evidence throughout your programme.
Across the length of an apprenticeship you have teaching sessions every four to eight weeks.
If you are completing a Standard towards the end of your apprenticeship you will have a meeting with your coach and manager to determine whether you are ready for your 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.
