Learning, Teaching and Assessment
Programme Duration and Delivery
It will typically take three years 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, delivered at Leeds Trinity University. On campus learning is supported by a variety of online tasks and independent research activities which can be undertaken in the workplace.
Throughout the programme, apprentices are assessed via various methods including:
- Professional discussions
- Work-based projects
Apprentices will also create a portfolio of evidence 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. Evidence may include reports, reflective logs and formative assessments.
Upon completion of the degree, each apprentice will undertake the "end-point assessment" which comprises a synoptic project undertaken in the final six months of the programme including a presentation and professional discussion based on the review of portfolio.
