What is the apprentice initial assessment?
The initial assessment of an apprentice is a measure of their existing knowledge before beginning the programme. The assessment is completed by the training provider to understand the training required for the learner to reach competency in their role.
Establishing a learner’s baseline knowledge helps to tailor the programme. High levels of existing knowledge may result in the apprentice being deemed unsuitable for the programme.
Prior learning is recorded in the apprenticeship commitment statement.
