This CPD is suitable for any technician who is planning to support, or is already supporting, an apprentice in the workplace as part of their role in a technical environment. The programme aims to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to enhance the workplace experience and opportunities for demonstrating competence of the apprentice for whom they are responsible.

The one day interactive CPD will focus on developing skills to identify opportunities for evidence collection in order to demonstrate competence against the apprenticeship framework through a practical and tailored approach to supporting an apprentice. The CPD will provide practical help and guidance for technicians in understanding the apprenticeship framework and their contribution in ensuring apprentices achieve successful outcomes.

  • to provide an overview of the apprenticeship framework and its key elements
