Apprentice Showcase

The Apprentice Showcase is compiled of 12 months of on-programme learning this will enable the apprentice to reflect and present examples of their development over the whole on-programme period.


The Apprentice Showcase will be submitted as a portfolio submission with a maximum of 20 pieces of evidence. It is expected that the portfolio submission will include elements such as work-based evidence including; customer feedback, recordings, manager statements, and witness statements. It will also include evidence from others, such as mid-and-end of year performance reviews, and feedback.


The assessor will interview the apprentice for up to 30 minutes, where they will delve deeper into the learning and experience shown in the showcase.


Practical Observation

The Practical Observation will be pre-planned and scheduled for when the apprentice is in their normal workplace and will be carried out by the Independent End-Point Assessor and this will take no less than 60 minutes. The Practical Observation should enable the apprentice to show evidence of their skills, knowledge and behaviours that are required for this standard and be able to demonstrate genuine and demanding work objectives. Each situation during this observation will be different and examples are, handling general enquires, dealing with customer complaints or finding out further information or detail.


Professional Discussion

The Professional Discussion will be a structured discussion between the apprentice and Independent End-Point Assessor, this will follow on from the practical observation to establish the apprentices understanding and application of knowledge, skills, and behaviours. The Professional Discussion will need to take place in a suitable environment and should only last for 60 minutes. The discussion will be appropriately structured to draw out the best of the apprentice’s energy, enthusiasm, competence, and excellence.
