The portfolio will cover the tasks you’ve been doing at work and will record how you’ve used your growing skills and knowledge in the workplace. Your portfolio allows you to showcase your very best work and also allows you to demonstrate how you have applied your IT knowledge and understanding in a real-work environment to achieve real-work objectives.

The difference between Standards and Frameworks is that Standards require you to complete an End-Point Assessment. The End Point Assessment takes place toward the end of the apprenticeship, usually in the last 2-3 months. We’ll help prepare you – don’t worry! Your End-Point Assessment is made up 4 different parts which include an Apprentice portfolio, an employer reference, a synoptic project and an interview with the End-Point Assessor. However, End-Point Assessments can only take place when any compulsory classroom, online and vendor qualification learning is completed.
