Apprentices will be supported by 1-2-1 support from their assessor in their workplace or at Telford College. Telford College works with the employer and the apprentice to create a specific development plan to meet the apprenticeship standards which the apprentice is expected to work towards.
Whilst working to the plan in the workplace the apprentice will track the journey mapping to the require standards showing valuable knowledge, skills and practical experience gained. Alongside an off the job record highlighting all the learning that has taken place (a min of 20% of the duration of the apprenticeship). The apprentice will be expected to use an electronic platform where their evidence can be stored, this is called Smart Assessor and endorsed by Telford College as the format for apprenticeship working.
Apprentices are supported by a Health & Social Care assessor who will conduct assessment in the workplace (observation of demonstrated practice) and with regular reviews between the employer, tutor, and apprentice to discuss progress and achievements. Apprentices are expected to produce evidence set by their Assessor.
