Maria Miller MP officially opened the doors to the new EV Training Centre on Friday 23 October.
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.
The apprentice will cover how to communicate constructively and offer emotional intelligence towards others via one-to-ones or small groups, and how to create, modify and review individual learning plans, then receive guidance on assessment practice and coaching methods.
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.
The end point assessment has two components, there are two hours of observations and a portfolio that will showcase the apprentice's development that will lead to a professional discussion. During the programme there will be a series of observations and reviews as well as formative assessments and tasks in lessons.
