Our first apprentices to undertake an apprenticeship standard recently passed their end point assessment.

Previously, apprenticeships were solely based on frameworks, which are primarily qualification-focused. Learners are assessed throughout the duration of their apprenticeship and rewarded with a competency-based and/or technical qualification at the end of it.

Standards, on the other hand, are occupation-focused. Developed to meet the needs of employers, they emphasise the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to carry out certain roles. Instead of assessment throughout their apprenticeship, learners complete one assessment at the end of it.

Tanya Jassal and James Hughes both completed the AAT Assistant Accountant Level 3 apprenticeship upon completion of their end point assessments; our first students to do so. They are both now progressing onto the AAT Level 4 Professional Diploma in Accounting and look forward to a promising career in the industry.

Steve Lee, Head of Skills and Apprenticeships, said:

It’s great news that our first students to undertake an apprenticeship standard have passed their end point assessment. This is a result of excellent collaboration between the College, the apprentices and the employers. We are confident that, going forward, all of our apprentices who undertake apprenticeship standards will achieve the same.

Huge congratulations to Tanya and James and we wish them the best of luck for their future.
