Assessment

Training and assessments are delivered in the workplace and in college. Apprentices will be required to attend college-based sessions as part of their training, whilst also completing off-the-job training in the workplace. You will also complete assessments and observations in the workplace.

You will need to complete Level 2 Maths and English before End Point Assessment.

At the end of the Apprenticeship you will complete an End Point Assessment which will comprise of:

1. Log book
The assessment organisation will review the final year of the apprentice’s logbook in order to assess the progress the individual has made over time, particularly with regard to the way the development of their soft skills and behaviours have progressed.

2. Behaviour Assessment
They will conduct an independent behaviour assessment, taking input from the apprentice’s immediate work circle. This will be the final peer review, completing a sequence that started at the point the apprentice joined the programme. It will provide evidence of the quality of the individual’s soft skills and the degree to which their behaviours meet the requirements of the workplace.

3. Knowledge Test
There will be an in-depth, online test that will use a range of question types to explore both the knowledge and understanding of the apprentice. The question types will be designed to test the ability of the apprentice to apply their knowledge to real-world problems.

4. Skills Test
The fourth element is a two-day practical examination of the skills of the apprentice and their understanding of the underpinning theory. There will be approximately ten exercises that will provide an effective test of the range of skills required by a technician. They will be timed and carried out in an environment that simulates the workplace to ensure they provide an insight into the individual’s competence.
