This consists of: 

  • 1 to 1 monthly meetings of approx. two hours with a GLP trainer (face to face or telephone)

  • On-line learning courses and/or group sessions

  • Building an electronic portfolio of workrelated evidence

  • Maths and English at Level 2 (if not previously achieved)

  • 20% of time at work to be spent working towards apprenticeship

  • End Point Assessment (EPA) by an external examiner to complete qualification, consisting of: knowledge test, portfolio-based Interview & project presentation

Professional Qualifications, Career Progression, Links to professional Registrations


Apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the end-point assessment. For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement, the apprenticeship’s English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3. British Sign Language qualification is an alternative to English qualifications for those whom this is their primary language.
