Apprenticeship Programmes - Assessment approach

Assessment Plan
Each learner has an assessment plan drawn up with them at the start of their apprenticeship. This details how and when they will be assessed - including both formative on-programme assessment and inpreparation for the summative end point assessment (the 'Gateway' event). This plan will also include the CMI Assignment Schedule.

On-programme Assessment
Evidence is individual and can include assignments, reports, tasks undertaken, assignments, and appraisals against performance objectives. It can also include plans, records of observation of performance, KPI data, a personal reflective log, and feedback on behaviours via contact with others. Teamwork is also assessed - based on managers' reports, emails, customer comments, peer reviews, recorded professional discussions and presentations.

Gateway to end-point assessment
This is the point when all agree the participant is ready for the end point assessment (EPA). This assessment includes a number of different elements, depending on the programme level.
