Our dedicated tutors are specialists in their fields and each learner has a tutor assigned to them upon enrolment based on their learning requirements, course, location and level. Our courses are delivered through a combination of face-to-face tuition at the learner’s place of work and virtual learning via online sessions. As part of every training course, learners are required to spend 20% of their contracted working hours undertaking off-the-job training. Off-the-job training is training that is outside of usual workplace duties, but it may still be conducted at your place of work.
Course delivery styles may include:
- The teaching of theory: lectures, role playing, simulation exercises, online learning or manufacturer training
- Practical training: shadowing, mentoring, industry visits and attendance at competition
- Coursework: learning support and time spent writing assessments/assignments
HOW ARE APPRENTICESHIPS ASSESSED?
Throughout our courses, leaner progress is assessed to determine knowledge and competency. Typical methods of gaining evidence to assess performance may include:
- On-the-job observations: your tutor will observe you carrying out day-to-day tasks, assessing your competency in the workplace
- Coursework: throughout the course, your tutor will set you a variety of tasks to be completed following your one-to-one sessions; these tasks will help you acquire the skills and knowledge required to complete the syllabus
- Witness testimonials: we will gather a variety of witness testimonials from your line manager to evidence your performance at work, demonstrating your ability
- Examinations: some of our courses also require learners to sit an examination to formally assess knowledge and competency
