Working alongside both the Curriculum and Apprenticeship teams, you will need to have a good understanding of the end to end learning journey for the apprentices. You will take full responsibility for your cohort(s) of Apprentices and be instrumental in ensuring apprentices are ready for End Point Assessment (EPA).
Whist working closely with apprentices, you will deliver training, monitor and review their progress, set targets and undertake assessments in the workplace. You will monitor the achievement of the 20% off-the-job (OTJ) training requirement and support the apprentice and employers to achieve it. You will also embed Maths and English into the delivery, supporting any functional skills requirements. You will ensure apprentices are aware of routes for progression and further development.
Developing relationships with both existing and new employers, you will actively secure training opportunities and support the growth of apprenticeships. You will assist the development of employers' assessment capabilities, ensuring they are aware of their health and safety, safeguarding and equal opportunities obligations, as well as taking care to ensure work and college-based aspects of the apprenticeship complement each other effectively.
As the successful candidate, you will be an excellent communicator with extensive sector or subject knowledge, industry experience, as well as an understanding of professional development and work-based learning. You will be comfortable working independently with external and internal stake holders and will have excellent organisational and time management skills building professional business relationships with employers. You will need to be flexible, creative, resourceful and inclusive in the delivery.
The ideal candidates will be experienced in delivering Apprenticeship Standards and working in the Further Education/Work Based Learning sector. Applicants direct from industry are welcomed. Support will be made available to gain teaching /assessing qualifications where required.
