Assessment Plans

Assessment plans are an essential part of a Baltic apprenticeship. They are assigned ‘projects’ used evidence the knowledge and skills obtained throughout the programme. 

The plans are used to ensure apprenticeship training is being put into practice, by providing examples of tasks and activities undertaken in the workplace. 

As part of the end point assessment (EPA), the assessment plans will build the Summative Portfolio. This will be reviewed by an external assessor and will contribute to the overall grade of the apprenticeship. 

There are 3 assessment plans to be completed throughout this programme. 

Functional Skills
  • Level 2 – Maths (5 day course, SMART Classroom & 1 day exam)
  • Level 2 – English (5 day course, SMART Classroom & 1 day exam)

Functional skills will be delivered via SMART Classroom, with full day sessions over the course of a week.  At the end of the week, learners will be required to sit a final exam held at a local test centre. In order to be exempt from this training, sufficient evidence on prior qualifications should be provided before induction.  Learners who do not provide relevant exception certificates will be automatically enrolled onto the additional courses.
