NATIONAL VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATION

The current Apprenticeship Frameworks are being phased out and replaced by Professional Standards from May 2017.
The course duration will be dependent on the programme and units required and the results from learners’ diagnostic assessment and/or prior learning.

There is a final graded End Point Assessment, depending on the learner's performance with an independent Examiner. At the end of the programme they are graded either a pass or distinction.

Positive Approach will still offer the Frameworks to employers and learners depending on individual needs
