An apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification while developing your skills and experience in a full-time paid job.  


During the apprenticeship you will have day to day support from your employer and have a dedicated Remit Development Coach who will visit you in your workplace to give regular 1-2-1 training and support


The final, end point assessment is completed in the last few months of the apprenticeship. It is based on;

  • a portfolio – presented towards the end of the apprenticeship, containing evidence from real work projects which have been completed during the apprenticeship
  • a project – you would undertake a business-related project over a one-week period away from the day to day workplace
  • your employer would write you a reference
  • a structured interview with an assessor – giving you the chance to discuss what has been presented in the portfolio and the project as well as looking at how it has been produced
