How your employees will learn

The aim is to help your apprentices get the most out of this apprenticeship. We will work with them to make sure they’re getting all the coaching and support they need through the right balance of face-to-face and virtual learning.

TRAINER SESSIONS Their dedicated trainer will be an experienced professional in the project management field and will guide them through their on-programme journey. The style of training is designed for them to learn about and be tested against the knowledge, skills, and behaviour requirements as well as allowing them to pick the brains of their trainer.

VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT Your employees will also gain access to further learning and support via Interserve’s Virtual Learning Environment. The trainer will set learning tasks following each trainer session on the online system throughout the on-programme journey.

The end result

Once the individual has passed the Gateway requirements, it’s time for them to take their situational judgement test and have a final professional discussion. If they’re successful, they will then become a fully qualified Lead Adult Care Worker.

We will facilitate the delivery of the apprentice’s End-Point Assessment through an approved Assessment Organisation registered on the Register of Apprentice Assessment Organisations.
