Teaching and assessment
You will need to complete tasks and gain a portfolio of evidence through work-based learning and assessment, taught sessions and online delivery. A qualified tutor/assessor will examine the evidence, which is then approved by the external verifier (appointed by the examining body). Personal learning and thinking skills and employment rights and responsibilities are embedded in the apprenticeship.
Our teaching and assessment is underpinned by our Teaching, Learning and Assessment Strategy 2015-2020.
