Assessment Plan –

Delivery of the standard itself is based around a number of competency and knowledge units, each consisting of introduction, training, personal study, completion and observation. We use Smart Screen which is an online hosted resource mapped to the apprenticeship. We can also deliver the Business Administrator Diploma alongside the apprenticeship, where the learner is able to take on the additional learning, to give the learners an additional qualification.

The standard is delivered through a combination of monthly one to one sessions of around 2 -2.5 hours and, where this is a cohort, monthly knowledge sessions of an hour to introduce each knowledge module (8 sessions). 

  • IT - Multiple IT packages and systems. Examples include MS Office or equivalent packages. Databases / recording information / data analysis

  • External Environmental Factors - Market forces, policy and regulatory changes, supply chain etc.

Each project covers aspects of knowledge, skills and behaviours and helps the learner build the experience and portfolios they need to successfully complete their apprenticeship.

Before gateway, the collected documents are combined to create the learners’ portfolios and the learners also create a presentation for the EPA. By focussing in this way learners and tutors are able to ensure that all KSBs are fully tracked throughout the apprenticeship and that learners have a clear idea of their growth in knowledge and related progress.

EPA consists of a knowledge exam, a portfolio-based interview and a project presentation.
