What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

Level 3 Learning & Development Practitioner Standard:

Assessment Plan:

Focus is more on the mandatory knowledge units at the start of the course to ensure the learners are able to update their Learning Journal, the focus on the skills and look more closely at behaviours towards the end of the course – though this would of course be refined around your needs.  We would be aiming to use a combination of group sessions and one-to-one depending on availability and need.

Knowledge units are:

  • Technical expertise
  • Business and Commercial understanding
  • L&D function
  • Management information and technology

Skills are:

  • Training
  • Identifying needs
  • Design
  • Delivery
  • Evaluation
  • Communication
  • Team Work

End-Point Assessment (EPA) is based on a Learning Journal, updated throughout the standard, and a project that is submitted and written as part of the EPA.  This means that delivery will only take 15 months, but the assessment can take up to 3.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

At the end of the apprenticeship, you have the opportunity to become a permanent, full-time employee of SS&C. At this point the salary will also be reviewed.

Working with SS&C will open opportunities for career growth both within the L&D team and throughout the rest of the organisation.
