Recent changes have placed employers at the forefront of developing apprenticeship standards and deciding how these standards should be assessed. While this gives employers more power to develop workers with the right skills for their organisations, it also places responsibility for assessment squarely at their feet.
In this whitepaper the experts at SQA, which has almost 90 years of assessment expertise in the UK and internationally, share their thoughts and frame the discussion on assessment design, development and delivery.
This whitepaper covers a range of topics, including what the changes in apprenticeships mean for assessment, how to develop a successful assessment approach and how to grade an apprenticeship. It also discusses the importance of quality assurance in assessment and highlights recent innovations and best practice from the UK and abroad.
