It is a Government requirement for you to spend 6 hours a week working towards your “Off the Job Learning” – off the job learning can consist of college attendance, coursework, project related work, employer training, mentoring and coaching.

Learning and assessment

Apprentices build a portfolio of work and work place assessors will be in regular contact to provide support, and to arrange on-site visits to observe the apprentices’ ability and skills in their daily role. It is important for the apprentice to take ownership of their own learning by seeking out opportunities to gain new skills on the job with the employer. The apprentice’s final grade will be determined by the collective assessments known as “the endpoint assessment” and has a Pass/Distinction grade.

The three assessments are:
  • Online knowledge based tests
  • Skills test (knowledge and behaviours are observed in the workplace)
  • Professional discussion (apprentice is to demonstrate that they can apply the broad range of knowledge, skills and behaviours in the Standard)

Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, and subject to progress as an employee, Hampshire Vehicle Repairs would like to offer you a full time job.
