How is the Apprenticeship Structured?



Following on from the process of on programme training, learners will subsequently move onto Gateway where a formal meeting between the apprentice, employer and training provider will take place to establish whether required standards have been met. At this stage there must also be evidence of the apprentice having achieved a level 2 in Maths and English and a level 1 in ICT. 

Cognitia can also provide functional skills, if required. 

Structure of the End-point Assessment (EPA)

  1. Knowledge Exam – A 2 hour examination, comprising of multiple choice and open response questions to test the apprentice’s knowledge against national occupational standards.
  2. Assessment of Work Project – This will typically commence within 6 months of the Gateway meeting. The report will be assessed and form the basis of the presentation. For example a work project could follow a Plan, Do, Check, Act model, by writing or reviewing an activity risk assessment to plan and identify improvement in the organisations management system. The work project report will be 2000 words (+/-10%).
  3. Professional Discussion – A recorded professional discussion will take place between the apprentice and the end-point assessor and will cover all key elements detailed within the standard. The professional discussion will last 60 minutes +/- 10%.
