Training to be Delivered

● Mandatory L2 AAT qualification is embedded at no additional cost

● Duration of the apprenticeship is typically 13 months plus 3 months for end point assessment (EPA). Please note: Additional months are added on if the apprentice needs to complete Functional Skills L2 maths + 3 months and Functional Skills L2 English + 3 months.

● When the apprentice completes the learner skills scan, we will use this information to make the necessary funding adjustments and reduce the time on programme

● Curriculum sessions are weekly and are remote – these are via Google Meet. All resources and class materials are on Google Classroom

●  Apprenticeship assessor sessions are every 4 weeks (TLAPs are set – teaching, learning and assessment plans), with reviews being every 8 weeks (mandatory attendance from the manager to ensure a joined-up approach). All of the apprenticeship evidence is logged and evidenced on the e-portfolio system – ‘onefile’

● 6 hours off the job – must be logged every single week to meet ESFA funding rule requirements

● Mock EPA sessions will commence once all of the requirements for gateway have been met
