What Is An Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a real job with training. Individuals earn while they learn, gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role. There are currently over 600 apprenticeship roles approved for delivery.

Businesses in all industry sectors in England can recruit apprentices and depending on the level of the apprenticeship and job role, they can take between twelve months and five years to complete.


For Each Dynamic Training Apprenticeship Programme...

  • Apprentices are allocated a Dynamic Training Skills & Development Coach who will support and guide them for the duration of their apprenticeship
  • The apprenticeship programme will be delivered as blended learning, which consists of both online and face to face delivery
  • Apprentices need to have good internet access and a suitable device such as a laptop, or tablet to work on
  • Microsoft Teams is used for coaching sessions (one-to-one) and for taught sessions (group)
  • During your apprenticeship programme, apprentices participate in training, development and ongoing review activities which include:
    • Induction (specific to the apprentices’ workplace)
    • Taught training sessions
    • Internal continuous professional development
    • Mentoring/buddy support
    • Completion of a portfolio of evidence

So What Happens During The Apprenticeship Process?

The apprentice will be allocated a Dynamic Training Skills & Development Coach who will support and guide them for the duration of their apprenticeship. Within 2 - 3 weeks of the apprenticeship induction, their Skills & Development Coach will meet with the apprentice and their line manager in the workplace to plan the 20% off the job activity and complete the individual learning plan.

An apprentice will require regular meetings with their Skills & Development Coach who will plan to stretch and challenge the apprentice’s learning. The apprentice will also be learning and developing new skills/competencies and knowledge in the workplace that need to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.

The apprenticeship programme will be delivered as blended learning. Blended learning is a combination of both online and face to face delivery. The apprentice will need to have good internet access and a suitable device such as a smart phone, laptop, or tablet to work on. Microsoft Teams is used for coaching sessions and taught sessions. Please ensure that your apprentice has Microsoft Teams and is permitted to use these applications in order to complete their training.

During the on programme phase of an apprenticeship, an apprentice must achieve 20% off the job training, study for a qualification (if one is included in their apprenticeship) and achieve English, maths (and in some cases ICT) Functional Skills qualifications, if not already held.

Assessment Gateway

Upon completion of the apprenticeship programme, the apprentice will go through gateway. This is a 3 way meeting with the apprentice, their line manager, and the Skills & Development Coach, confirming the mandatory aspects of the apprenticeship have been completed and the apprentice is ready to undertake the end point assessment phase of the apprenticeship with the independent End Point Assessment Organisation.

End-Point Assessment

The End Point Assessment phase of an apprenticeship is typically 6 - 12 weeks following gateway. The date for the End Point Assessment is booked and the apprentice completes the necessary activities to ensure the End Point Assessment can be undertaken.

The End Point Assessment will incorporate different assessment components such as, interview, observation, presentation, multiple choice questions, scenario based questions. The assessment components will vary, depending on the apprenticeship the apprentice is undertaking. The independent assessor will determine the overall grade. An apprentice can be graded: fail, pass, merit or distinction.
