*You must achieve Maths & English Grade C or above as a condition of entry onto a BCT apprenticeship

Off the job training will consist of a mix of online learning, tutorial sessions and industry master classes at the college, alongside monthly assessment sessions in the workplace with tailored support for each apprentice preparing them for end point assessment.

While spending time away from the employer apprentices are taught a wide range of up to date industry specific skills and practices by our team of industry experts creating industry standard products.

Off the job training is an invaluable part of our apprenticeships and has been shown to improve the overall success of our programmes for both the apprentice and the employer

After a minimum of 12 months on the apprenticeship, alongside gathering their summative portfolio of evidence covering the standard and achieving the knowledge modules and professional qualification, an apprentice will then be eligible for end point assessment.

This will take place through an independent assessment provider and will consist of 4 key areas:

• Assessment of the summative portfolio
• Employer Reference

The apprentice submits their portfolio of evidence covering the complete standard, along with a reference from their employer explaining how they have performed and applied their knowledge and skills in the workplace.

• Synoptic Project
• Interview

The apprentice will then also complete a pre-defined project in a controlled environment based around a selected set of knowledge, skills and behaviours from the standard. Finally there will be an interview, which will be a structured discussion between the apprentice and an independent assessor, focusing on the summative portfolio and the synoptic project.

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?

An apprenticeship is a combination of training and employment that allows apprentices to earn a wage while also gaining invaluable knowledge and understanding of your specific creative sector through off the job training delivered by industry expert Tutors and Assessors at BCE. If you choose to join a Big Creative Apprenticeship, you will be hired as an apprentice for a minimum of 12 months working in an exciting creative company alongside completing a mixture of industry specific knowledge modules, nationally recognised and professional qualifications.

EMPLOYMENT

An apprentice is employed and paid directly by their employer either full-time (5 days per week), or part-time basis (4 days per week). All apprentices must participate in ‘off-the-job’ training which will consist of a mix of; remote online learning, assessment visits in your workplace, individual/group tutorials and monthly sector specific masterclasses with industry professional at the BCE campus as a part of their paid working week.

As an apprentice you will also gain valuable work experience, contacts and industry knowledge. An apprentice must be paid a minimum of £109.20 per week full-time. However many employers pay above this rate to compensate for the high living expenses in London.
