- You will complete Functional Skills at Level 2 (GCSE A-C/9-4) as this is a Level 3 apprenticeship qualification.
- Most learning is delivered within the workplace by our tutors, either in person or by online learning. The only exceptions are the speaking and listening assessments, which may be delivered in a classroom.

What is off-the-job training?
In short, for 20% of your apprenticeship, you must have time away from your regular duties to engage in training related to your post. This is known as off-the-job training, and could include a variety of tasks. For example, practical training, theory tests and writing tests would all count as off-the-job training.
You do not need to visit a classroom to complete off-the-job training, and you will complete it within your normal working hours. As part of this training, one of our tutors will conduct both one-to-one workplace visits and remote learning sessions. This will take place every 4-6 weeks, with remote sessions delivered through video conferencing. Each session lasts 1½-4 hours, depending on your individual learning needs.
The End-Point Assessment
As part of your apprenticeship, you will complete the End-Point Assessment (EPA). In short, this assessment will help you to showcase the skills, knowledge and behaviours you have developed through the programme. You can achieve either a Pass or Distinction.
For the Level 3 Retail Team Leader apprenticeship, the EPA includes the following:
- On-Demand Assessment
This will be both a series of multiple choice questions, as well as scenario based questions on your knowledge and skills gained through the duration of the apprenticeship and around your day-to-day job role.
This will be completed on-screen, unless individual assessment needs dictate a suitable alternative method.
- Retail Business Project
This could be a project to identify a potential cost saving for the business through improving efficiency, reducing waste or finding alternative ways of working to achieve business objects.
It will include a research proposal, as well as a presentation. The presentation is delivered face-to-face.
- Professional Discussion
- Finally, as part of your qualification you will complete a professional discussion with one of our independent assessors.
- You will showcase any additional learning you have completed during the apprenticeship.
- This additional learning can be both formal and informal learning, as well as any assignments and projects you have completed.
Once you have completed this qualification at Level 3, there are several progression routes available, dependant on your industry and job role:
