Telford College works with the employer 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 required
standards showing valuable knowledge, skills and practical experience gained. Alongside, an ‘Off the Job Training record’, highlighting all the learning that has taken place (a min of 20% of the duration of the apprenticeship) is required to be completed.
When the Diploma, Project, Apprenticeship Standard and the required Off the Job Training hours have been completed, the Apprentice will move to the Assessment Gateway. This is where the employer confirms competency and performance. On successful completion of the Gateway, the apprentice will then complete End-Point Assessment where the knowledge, skills and behaviours required as set out in the Standards, will be assessed through a variety of Assessment Methods.
