Teaching Delivery
Key Learning Requirements
Apprenticeships require learners to achieve specific new knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs), which are detailed in the Apprenticeship Standard. These are achieved by;
1) Programme Teaching; 1-to-1 coaching sessions every 6 weeks and online resources.
2) Independent study; such as assignment/project research and write up
3) Learning in the workplace; shadowing colleagues, completing programme assigned work based projects, new learning and development within your current role duties/work activities, reflections with mentor, relevant training sessions.
Optional Medical Terminology Training; For those who wish to add this option, the learner will commence the 12 week course, after completing the apprenticeship. This consists of online delivery covering 5 modules (1 module every fortnight). The exam will be on week 12. It is expected this will require minimum 1 hour each week dedication. This is separate to the apprenticeship award and therefore cannot be counted towards achieving the apprenticeship requirements.
This programme has fixed module delivery (you are unable to choose the modules studied). A list of modules is available on the course webpage or course materials.
This programme does not require external placements to be completed, although varied experiences are beneficial.
Assessed throughout the programme by assignments, observations, evaluations and End Point Assessment.

If the candidate does not have evidence of Maths and English at the relevant level, the Training Provider will support the learner through the relevant learning and exams, alongside their apprenticeship.
