Assessment for AAT Apprenticeships

Assessment of our AAT Apprenticeships will be by an “End Point Assessment” and will be graded “Pass” or “Distinction”. Under our programme, this will include two elements:

The AAT in-tray exercise (Level 2) or AAT Synoptic exam (Levels 3 & 4)

Combined testing of some of the units and overall understanding of the course.

A Structured Interview, Professional Discussion or a Written Statement

Based on the knowledge, skills and behaviours developed in the workplace over the period of the Apprenticeship.

This is a blended programme of learning. Our Level 2 materials comprise on-line interactive presentations with voice-overs and tons of practice activities. At Levels 3 and 4 we introduce more traditional study manuals alongside the on-line materials.

We also run “Drop-in” tutor supported sessions at our venues in Exeter, Falmouth, Plymouth and Taunton. Some of our apprentices attend every week for the whole day, some for half a day, and some as and when they need to. Because of the distances involved, some study from their offices. 

Where apprentices don’t attend the drop-in sessions, their personal tutor will contact them each week to monitor progress and provide any tutor support required. They are also available throughout the week to answer questions by email or phone and to mark progress tests and give feedback
