Maths and English are key elements of apprenticeship programmes, apprentices without Level 1 English and maths will need to achieve this level and take the test for Level 2 English and maths prior to taking the end-point assessment.

Skills in Maths and English will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (4-9) This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study."

How will it be delivered?

Assessments will be carried out by your assessor in the workplace who will be looking to see certain skills, knowledge and behaviours in order to gather evidence for your portfolio.
