Learning, Teaching and Assessment
Programme Duration and Delivery
It will typically take 12-18 months to complete the apprenticeship, however, there may also be opportunities to join part way through the programme if candidates have considerable experience in a particular area.
Apprentices will benefit from lectures and seminars, usually delivered on campus. Learning is supported by a variety of tasks and independent research activities which can be undertaken in the work place.
Throughout the programme apprentices are assessed via various methods including:
- Work-based projects
Apprentices will also create a portfolio throughout the programme in order to allow them to demonstrate how they have achieved the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard. The final part of the Apprenticeship is the 'end-point assessment' which has two parts:
- A situational judgement test
- A competence interview informed by submission of the portfolio
