Digital marketer, Business Administration and Junior Content Producer results have come in.
In May 2017 the apprenticeship programme changed from an old assessment led framework model to a new apprenticeship called standards. These were streamlined, more modern apprenticeships that were based on job roles in the industry.
One of the biggest changes was that all apprenticeship standards had end point assessments. Or exams. Previously on the old framework apprenticeships, learners were “on programme” assessed, meaning the learner would achieve elements with their assessor as the programme progressed. So at the end of the programme, if all had gone well the learner would be 100%, assessed and complete.
With the standards they now have an “exam” or end point assessment. The End Point Assessment is a confined test designed for the apprentice to prove their skills. After the End Point Assessment the apprentice will get graded (whereas on the framework model you just got a pass).
With a new apprenticeship and a new assessment method, Creative Alliance developed completely new training plans. Making sure we kept our industry relevant training that was tailored to our employers. And we were quietly confident that we had approached them in the right way.
Over the last 4-5 months we have the results of our first completed apprenticeships coming in and we have not had one fail yet (touch wood!). We only have results for Digital Marketer, Business Administration and Junior Content Producer so far. But we have had a fantastic mix of Passes and Distinctions. With Junior Content Producer we have only had distinctions, which is just brilliant.
These results are just a validation of the hard work our apprentices, employers and training team have put in to making these new qualifications work. So well done to all our apprentices and good luck to those going through End Point Assessment, you are in good hands.
