The training you will be getting

Our training delivery is based on a remote, blended model of one-to-one sessions every 4 weeks, group sessions, webinars, online courses, video, and additional support as required. This means that our learners have the guidance they need as well as the flexibility to learn around the requirements of their jobs. We find that this approach reduces disruption for the learners and their line managers giving everyone the best chance of benefitting from the training and completing the course.   
Delivery of the standard is remote and is based around competency and knowledge units, consisting of introduction, training, personal study, completion and observation. To support learning, we utilise Highfield Workbooks and Smart Screen, which are online resources mapped to the apprenticeship. All learners are also given access to LinkedIn Learning, with bespoke channels designed to support their apprenticeship.  
The standard is divided into core knowledge modules which are as follows:  
- The Organisation – Understanding the organisational purpose, activities, aims, values, vision for the future.  
- Value of your skills – Understanding the organisational structure and how you fit and development of your skills.  
- Stakeholders – Managing stakeholders/ internal and external customers, clients and/or suppliers.  
- Relevant Regulation – Understanding laws and regulations relating to role including data protection, health and safety, compliance etc.  
- Policies – Reviewing organisational internal policies and key business policies relating to the sector.  
- Processes – How to make payments, processing customer data and improving business processes   
- Business Fundamentals – Project management  
- Business Fundamentals – Understanding Business principles such as managing change, business finances and project management.  
- External Environmental Factors – Understanding market forces, policy and regulatory changes and supply chains  
Once these are completed then focus moves to planning and delivery of the EPA project.  
Project Activity and Portfolio Building  
Each module covers aspects of knowledge, skills and behaviours and helps the learner build the experience and portfolio they need to successfully complete their apprenticeship.  
From month 9 of the apprenticeship, all learners will need to complete a project. This will be a genuine work-based project or process improvement. Criteria for the project includes: 
A project or process improvement should account for 21-35 working hours, over the apprenticeship, to adequately apply themselves   
Must be work-based - incorporating scoping, planning, managing, communicating to stakeholders, monitoring and reporting results   
The apprentice chooses the project/process improvement with the guidance of the employer and training provider. 
Gateway and End Point Assessment  
Before gateway the collected documents are combined to create the learners’ portfolios. This approach means that learners and tutors ensure that all knowledge, skills and behaviours required are fully tracked throughout the apprenticeship with learners having a clear understanding of their growth in knowledge and related progress.  
The End Point Assessment consists of a knowledge exam, a portfolio-based interview and a project presentation based on their portfolio.
