Structure of the apprenticeship:
Rather than the learner just being in a classroom environment, the apprenticeship is learning within the workplace. So our training is based around Montagu Evans and the job you will be doing day-to-day. Throughout the 15 month qualification there are 14 seminars which the apprentice has to attend. These will be delivered online. At the end of the 15 months there is an end point assessment – this is how you will be judged on your learning. There are two session’s but this is completed over approximately a month.
Observation at work – An assessor visits the workplace and assesses their skills and knowledge
Set test and interview – The learner is given a blank brief and has to develop a pitch and idea for that brief. They then have to pitch and speak about it in an assessed interview.
The Degree Apprenticeship Programme has been designed to include a mix of on- and off- the job training.
On-the-job: 80% of your time will be spent working as a full-time employee, contributing to the success of the organisation.
Off-the-job: 20% of your time will be dedicated to training away from the day-to-day work activities.
