How Ginger Nut Deliver
Delivery of the standard is based around modules consisting of introduction, training, personal study, and observation. To support learning, we utilise Highfield workbooks which are an online resource mapped to the apprenticeship.
The standard is delivered through a combination of monthly one to one sessions of 2 -2.5 hours and monthly knowledge sessions of an hour to introduce each knowledge module. The areas covered in the apprenticeship are:
- Business knowledge and understanding

Project Activity and Portfolio Building
Each module covers aspects of knowledge, skills and behaviours and helps the learner build the experience and portfolio they need to successfully complete their apprenticeship.
Gateway and End Point Assessment
Before gateway the collected documents are combined to create the learners’ portfolios. This approach means that learners and tutors ensure that all knowledge, skills and behaviours required are fully tracked throughout the apprenticeship with learners having a clear understanding of their growth in knowledge and related progress.
The End Point Assessment is based around a work-based project report of 2,500 words, which is based on a live business challenge, supported by a 60-minute interview. The work-based project is started after gateway and must be pre-approved by the Awarding Organisation. A practical observation followed by a question and answer session which must take place before the 60-minute professional discussion, which is based around their portfolio.
