You will work towards gaining an apprenticeship standard. The apprenticeship standard contains a list of skills, knowledge and behaviours you will need to have learnt by the end of your apprenticeship. Standards are occupation focused; they are not qualification-led. The learning happens throughout the apprenticeship and you are assessed at the end of your apprenticeship. It is at this point you will need to prove you can carry out all aspects of the job. This is called the End Point Assessment (EPA).
