Units Covered:

The Apprenticeship programme is made up of different units.  Apprentices will be assessed on their knowledge, skills and behaviours throughout the apprenticeship and tracked online using an e-portfolio.

These are grouped into 3 themes which complement each other and are as follows:

  • Core Business & Administration
  • Managing Self & Personal Skills
  • Using Resources & Achieving Results.



  • After each theme is complete, a Mock End Point Assessment is carried out to ensure apprentices are prepared for the End Point Assessment at the end of the programme.
  • After a minimum of 372 days and successful delivery of the programme, the end point assessment will take place. The end-point assessment is a synoptic assessment of the skills, behaviours and knowledge that have been developed throughout the apprenticeship.
  • End-Point Assessments will involve an independent assessor carrying out final assessments with the apprentice, to ensure that the competences and learning within the ‘Apprenticeship Standard’ have been met. 
  • Apprentices can achieve a pass, merit or distinction dependent on how well they perform in their End-Point Assessment.


Functional Skills: 
Apprentices also work towards a Level 2 qualification in English and maths in the first half of the programme if they have no prior exemption (GCSE’sA – C or equivalents in English and Maths).
