How It Works
1. Initial Scoping Session
We provide an initial scoping session, which includes everything from mapping the Job Role to the correct Level Apprenticeship, agreeing delivery programmes and helping employers understand the apprenticeship funding process.
We enrol/induct the learners and explain how a bespoke delivery plan, based on the requirements of the business, will work in practical terms.
Over the duration of the training we support the learners in the workplace with face to face and remote sessions. We also support the apprentices’ mentor and/or line manager's involvement in overseeing the Apprenticeship training.
We arrange all relevant end point assessment and prepare the learner on what to expect during end point assessment.
Following the successful completion of the training the learner receives their certification.
