  1. A Situational Judgement Test – this will be answered through a multiple choice exercise covering the knowledge and skills gained throughout the on-programme stage and detailed in the standard
  2. A Professional Discussion - which will comprise a range of evidence produced in the workplace to show that the apprentice has met the knowledge, skills and behaviours detailed in the standard. The reflective discussion will be a structured interview to examine this evidence and the learner’s journey in more detail.
