All apprentices must be employed and working in a role that meets the competence requirements of the framework. A rigorous recruitment and selections process is carried out to ensure that the aspiring apprentices are suited to enduring this exciting and challenging route of study. GCSE grade A-C in English and Maths would be an advantage. However if you cannot provide evidence of this then you will be required to sit an online assessment test.

Assessment

A wide range of assessment methods are used in the workplace. Evidence reflects how you have carried out the process relating to your competence.

For example: The process that you carry out could be recorded in an observation or witness testimony. Products relating to your competence could be minutes of a meeting, e mails, letters, photos and health and safety checks.

Different forms of questioning are carried out on an on-going part of the assessment process.
