The apprenticeship will be a combination of work based assessment and attendance at training days to enhance and underpin knowledge in your area of work, as well as ‘distance’ contact involving the completion of assignments, worksheets, etc remotely and then submitting these for grading and full, comprehensive feedback. We support you in attaining the required standard of occupational competency set against National Occupational Standards. A minimum of 12 months is all the time you need to complete an apprenticeship; however to achieve in this time Activfirst requires your commitment. Training and assessment will be arranged around your work as much as possible and a lot of evidence will be gathered by observing you carry out your day-to-day role.
