Team leader/supervisors are natural leaders. They manage people, operations, projects and more to deliver tangible outcomes for their company. As a team leader/supervisor, a successful apprentice will be in charge of determining their team’s direction and utilising their best qualities to achieve the company’s goals. The ability to lead and supervise a team is applicable to almost every industry. People who complete this apprenticeship will have skills to take them into a wide range of positions in the public, private and third sectors. An apprentice’s key duties could include, but are by no means limited to, supporting, managing and developing team members, managing projects, planning and monitoring workloads and resources, delivering operational plans, resolving problems and building relationships within and outside the business.

End-Point Assessment

The end-point assessment will consist of four sections, all weighted differently, to test the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the apprentice: a knowledge test, a structured competencey-based interview, a portfolio submission and a professional discussion of CPD activity.

For the knowledge test, a series of different scenarios and situations will be used that will require responses demonstrating the apprentice's knowledge of the particular topic. The test may be delivered online or may be paper-based and will likely be multiple choice. 

The structured competency-based interview is an interview between the apprentice and the independent assessor. Knowledge requirements and the apprentice's application will be tested using a structured series of questions to assess the apprentice’s knowledge to ensure all aspects are given coverage. The interview can be conducted using a range of media (telephone interview, live media, online or written).

The apprentice will then compile a portfolio of evidence that will be reviewed and assessed by the independent assessor, who makes a judgement on the quality of the work. It will comprise a collection of evidence (preferably in an online portfolio with written, audio and video evidence) over the course of the apprenticeship.

For the final stage of the end-point assessment, the apprentice will provide evidence of any additional learning/CPD undertaken during the apprenticeship, including any assignments or projects, details of any formal or informal learning undertaken and details of any professional discussions undertaken or support provided through Professional Bodies. The Independent Assessor will undertake a professional discussion with the apprentice to identify the objective of the activity and reflect on the outcome and how learning gained was applied.
