The Information Communications Technician apprenticeship will provide teaching towards the knowledge, skills and behaviors of the apprenticeship standard. Apprentices will then work towards an end-point assessment with an independent end-point assessor from City and Guilds; this includes a professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence and a project report with questioning. Successful EPA can result in a Pass, Merit or Distinction grade.
