How an apprenticeship is delivered

Apprentices benefit from support from an employers support, as well as us a training provider. All our Apprentices are assigned their own personal tutor, who will assess learner work, teach and support and provide resources and guidance. Apprentices have the added value of online resources to support their learning and development.

We use an award-winning E-portfolio system called OneFile, where learners can see their progress, update assignments and access resources and workbooks at any time. Employers can request a login to the E-portfolio system so that they can track your progress in real time.

As an apprentice, you can access your E-portfolio from your pc, laptop, i-pad or i-phone. 
Our tutors each month will come out to meet you at your workplace and sit alongside you helping you understand better the duties you are performing and giving you the knowledge to improve your skills. As well as the work they do alongside you as an apprentice there is also some written parts to the qualification which you will have to do both in work time and in your spare time. The written elements of the course are tracked via a system called "One File" this system allows you to upload your work and keep in touch with your tutor. Also, this is the place where the tutor can load and send new assignments to you.
