The older style of Apprenticeship is referred to as a Framework. In Frameworks, there would be no requirement to revisit a subject after you have covered the evidence requirements. This could mean a subject covered early on can be forgotten and not necessarily embedded.
The Learner was trained and assessed by the same person. Often known as an Assessor or more recently, Trainer/Assessor. This person would build a professional relationship with the Apprentice and because of the targets they often work to for the Training Provider they work for, would have a vested interest in the Apprentice completing successfully.
The new style Apprenticeships are referred to as Standards. With these, there is sometimes, but not always the requirement to undertake an NVQ style qualification. The Apprenticeship has it’s own set of standards that the Apprentice must learn.
Standards put the emphasis on Learning, partly because of the requirement for an End-Point Assessment. The End-Point Assessment is undertaken by Independent Assessors, like yourself, who will be contracted to undertake the assessment process at the conclusion of Learning and after the Apprentice has been on their learning programme for at least 1 year.
To be an End-Point Assessor will require a quite different set of skills. You will have no relationship with the learner and under no pressure for a particular outcome, simply to conduct a fair assessment and render an evidence-based judgement.
