Course Overview

This apprenticeship programme includes learning about the primary role of an Assessor/Coach, who manages the assessment of individuals to ensure they are ready for internal or external exams and other qualifications.

They will learn how to plan, stretch and provide feedback that enables their learner to grow in the workplace, industry, or develop their life skills. As part of the programme the apprentice will demonstrate working with colleagues and stakeholders, providing advice and guidance, and supporting with English and maths learning needs.

The apprentice will need to commit to one day a week at college and attend taught sessions as well as being observed in the workplace. 

This apprenticeship takes approximately 15 months for the apprentice to fully complete.
