Training provider

  • Level 2 Apprenticeship in Sales

The training is work-based with no day release to college. An Assessor is allocated to each learner and will visit you at the setting. Candidates will need to have access to a computer and internet connection as an online portfolio is used for training and assessment. 

During the initial stages of the Apprenticeship, a skills scan will be completed for Maths, English and ICT to assess current working levels and areas which require improvement. 

Continued learning and assessment will result in the creation of a comprehensive portfolio consisting of observations, discussion reports and statements. The Assessor will work with you and guide the Apprentice through this learning journey. 

Along with the Assessor observations, the Apprentice will be required to regularly complete independent online work and submit it for marking. At any point during the Apprenticeship, the Apprentice will be able to view their progress and see the percentage of work completed/outstanding. 

Throughout the training, each portfolio will be quality checked to ensure consistency of marking. This is necessary to keep the standards and quality of the training at the highest level. 

At the end of the qualification, the Apprentice will be issued with a certificate. There will also be the opportunity to discuss possible progression routes.
