Getting initial assessment right for apprenticeship standards

10:55 am - 11:40 am

Workshop

Getting initial assessment right for apprenticeship standards is vital, and underpins the quality and effectiveness of your provision. What’s more, it’s now a key focus for Ofsted and the ESFA. In this workshop, we’ll give you an overview of why initial assessment is so important and what you need to be thinking about. Drawn from our work with over 1,000 apprenticeship providers, we’ll take you through: • How initial assessment is different for apprenticeship standards • ESFA and Ofsted’s focus on initial assessment • Overcoming challenges – compliance, recognition of prior learning and curriculum planning • Insights and practice to help you take action
