Learning Mentor Apprenticeship Level 3: ST0148

Mentoring is – and has been for centuries – the foundation of vocational training and apprenticeships,
yet this standard is the fist formal recognition of this role. Nowadays, mentoring takes place in all
parts of the Education and Training Sector (ETS) and staff-development contexts.

Learning Mentors support learners of all ages, and all levels, to develop within a new work role.
Therefore support the development of learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviours, throughout their
programme, particularly in applying theoretical learning in practical work environments (and usually on
a one-to-one, or small group, basis). They give practical, technical and/or pastoral support and

Candidates may have achieved maths, English and ICT skills at Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or
above) prior to commencing their training. Those that have not must achieve this prior to taking the end-point assessment.

How does the EPA process for this apprenticeship Standard work? 

The same two methods of End-Point Assessment are used for this standard: The Situational Judgement Test (SJT) and the Professional Discussion (PD), but with the content elevated to match the level of the apprenticeship and the requirements of the job role. Apprentices will be tested through both assessments to see whether they have the expected knowledge, skills and behaviours. Apprentices will be graded as either pass, merit, distinction or fail. 

Learning and Development Practitioner Apprenticeship Level 3: ST0562

Learning and Development Practitioners are typically involved with identifying learning and training needs. The role will include designing or sourcing training and learning solutions. Delivering and evaluating training, and working with business area managers. The role focus is often on the practical delivery of training.

Apprentices without Level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this 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 qualifications are an
alternative to English qualifications for those for whom this is their primary language.

How does the EPA process for this apprenticeship Standard work? 

Once an apprentice has completed their training for this apprenticeship, that’s when they begin End-Point Assessment. There are two methods of End-Point Assessment for this standard: The Situational Judgement Test (SJT) and the Professional Discussion (PD). Both assessment methods are designed to ensure that the apprentice has demonstrated the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to pass the apprenticeship and can be graded – either pass, merit, or distinction – against their performance.
