A blending-learning mode of delivery is utilised which includes online virtual-classes, self-directed learning activities supported by face-to-face practical learning and assessment activities at our training facilities. For individual apprentices attending our training facilities, a range of training methods are used including trainer presentations, small group work, practical demonstrations and hands-on activities. We encourage the apprentice to be actively involved in the learning process and make the most of their time with our highly experienced and knowledgeable trainers.

Assessment is about gathering evidence which demonstrates the skills and knowledge the learner has acquired and may include any combination of the options outlined below:

  • question and answer to show the learner’s knowledge (these may be completed either written or verbally)
