The SHE technician apprenticeship is a level three qualification (the equivalent of two A Levels). Completion of the two-year course will enable apprentices to start their career as a safety and health professional and join IOSH at TechIOSH level.

The SHE apprenticeship will assist to develop, review and check on the implementation of safe systems of work, deliver training (e.g. toolbox talks and inductions), investigate incidents, analyse data and present findings to the management team”.


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.


  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%.
