Specific technical knowledge and skills training is provided by the employer. During the learning journey, apprentices will produce a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate they have developed the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed for the role and this portfolio will support the end-point assessment

 • The training and development delivered by the employer and provider will ensure the apprentice has developed the skills, knowledge and behaviours to be able to complete their end-point assessment

• The End-Point Assessment – this takes place at the end of the programme and consists of 1- 4 of the following (depending on the standard):

          • Professional Discussion

          • Observation

          • Portfolio of evidence

          • Written exam

          • Multiple choice test- Knowledge Test

           • Apprentice showcase- My Journey 

          • Competency based Professional Discussion
