Training provider

In order to meet the apprenticeship standard, apprentices will undertake a minimum 12 month period of on-programme learning, development and continuous assessment that is managed by the employer with the support of York College. The on-programme pace will be driven by the apprentice as well as by the breadth of experience an employer can offer prior to the minimum of 12 months, after which end-point assessment will take place.

The end-point assessment is synoptic and takes place at the end of the apprentice’s learning and development, after a minimum of 12 month’s on programme learning.

The employer and York College will formally sign-off that the apprentice has met the minimum requirements in regards to knowledge, skills and behaviours within the standard and confirm they are ready to move on to the end assessment. This will happen during a meeting involving the apprentice, their line manager and the trainer assessor.

There are three components that make up End Point Assessment for the Customer Service Practitioner apprenticeship standard. End Point Assessment will consist of:

  • An Apprentice Showcase
  • A Practical Observation
  • A Professional Discussion

For each of the three assessment methods, all pass criteria across the Assessment methods must be achieved to progress and complete the apprenticeship programme. A distinction will be awarded to apprentices who achieve all pass criteria, in addition to the required percentage of distinction criteria
