If you currently deliver apprenticeship training as a trainer/assessor, your role is going to change considerably.

In the future, you will need to design training plans and delivery to meet the requirements of apprenticeship standards. You will need to integrate new assessment methods and grading into your training planning, and prepare the apprentice to meet the gateway and undertake end-point assessment.

This five-part webinar series by Strategic Development Network will guide you through the end-to-end process of the role, what is required from you at each stage, and equip you with tools and resources to prepare and start .
