    On-programme training and development

The portfolio will provide evidence of the apprentice meeting the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the teachers’ standards.

    • Set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils
    • Promote good progress and outcomes by pupils

    Administering the End-Point Assessment

    The gateway is triggered by the employer when they judge that gateway requirements have been met. Delivery of all training, development and review activities up to the gateway are considered as being on-programme.

    All apprentices’ have to achieve level 2 English and Maths to enter the programme, and therefore these qualifications will automatically have been achieved prior to the gateway.
