Project Presentation

The apprentice will deliver a presentation on a project or process they have improved. The presentation will last 15 minutes and will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A.


Apprentices will achieve an overall grade, Distinction, Pass or Fail for their End-Point Assessment. For an apprentice to gain a minimum Pass, they will need to achieve all pass criteria. For an apprentice to gain a Distinction, all Pass and Distinction criteria must be met.

These results will be communicated within 10 days of assessment. Should a learner need to retake either or both assessment methods this will take place within 6 months of initial assessment.
