What You'll Learn
The level 3 apprenticeship program will require you to develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours in a professional environment and achieve a series of standards to prove your competence in leading people, building relationships, communication, operational management, project management and finance.
You will also start to gain evidence for your e-portfolio.
Develop a range of essential management skills applied and refined in a real working environment. Build the leadership capability to motivate teams and influence with confidence. Gain a broad understanding of key management and leadership theory to underpin and support growth and performance.
Before taking their end-point assessment, apprentices must achieve level 2 English and maths (equivalent to GCSEs at grades A* to C). We have an extensive support package available, including college attendance to functional skills classes and an online teaching and learning platform, which guides students from an initial and a diagnostic assessment to being exam ready.
How you will be assessed
On-programme is the learning phase for apprentices to pick up each standard’s skills, knowledge, and behaviours. Apprentices need to complete 20% off-the-job training during the on-programme phase of their apprenticeship. You can track and monitor the 20% through our e-portfolio. On program assessment includes:
• regular assessment (involving employer and training provider)
• development of a portfolio demonstrating learning and development activities with their application in the workplace.
• successful completion of management diploma level 3.
End Point Assessment
End-point assessment (EPA) is the final stage that an apprentice goes through to complete their apprenticeship. The apprentice must show their learning to an independent end-point assessor and the grades available are distinction, pass or fail. The EPA consists of:
• test of knowledge using scenarios with questions
• competency-based interview
• assessment of a portfolio of evidence
• professional discussion relating to CPD activity.
