The full team involved in teaching and coaching for the Policy Apprenticeship.
Explaining the Roles
There are three key roles in the team which will support your apprenticeship. Some members of staff cover more than one of these.
Your E-Portfolio: OneFile
We use One File as our e-portfolio system. This is where your assignments will be set, you will submit your work and you will log your off-the-job training.
Your regular reviews will be stored on here as will some resources for your course. You will complete a learning journal, be able to monitor your progress towards your Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours and refer to your workplace training plan.
Our training video covers all the key features of OneFile you need to know. Visit the Support and FAQs page if you have questions or issues.
Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours
During your Policy Officer apprenticeship, you will learn to demonstrate specific knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs).
The apprenticeship standard was revised in August 2022. Your KSBs will be different, depending on whether you started before or after that date.
For learners who started from August 2022
For learners who started before August 2022
Completing Your Apprenticeship
End Point Assessment (EPA) is the process at the end of your programme for you to demonstrate to a third party assessor that you have acquired the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship standard. This will only happen once yourself, your line manager and Skills Coach have agreed that you are ready.
