Course Requirements

Entry Requirements

Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprentices though most will be expected to hold 5 GCSEs at grade C or higher. Prior experience may also be considered. Apprentices should also have achieved qualifications in English and mathematics at a minimum of level 2 or equivalent. Where this is not the case, apprentices must complete these by the end of the Apprenticeship. It is also recommended that the apprentice is supported to become digitally literate where this is important to their role.

How Is It Assessed

Apprentices must pass the end-point assessment in order to achieve the apprenticeship certificate.

The end-point assessment for the Operational/ Departmental Manager Apprenticeship involves a review of the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence which is collated during their work/ study time; an externally set knowledge test; presentation of a work-based project and question/ answer session and an interview/ competency based discussion relating to the apprentice’s Continual Professional Development Log.

Apprentices will study online blended learning materials during allotted time at work.
