Apprentices at Hull Training and Adult Education are celebrating being some of the first in the UK to pass through tough new national educational standards.
The End Point Assessment (EPA) is the final assessment apprentices undertake to complete their training.
Hannah Cuthbert is one of those apprentices. With a level 2 apprenticeship complete, Hannah decided to continue her learning and joined the level 3 business administration apprenticeship. She recently completed her EPA and has been awarded a distinction for all her hard work.
Hannah said: “I have had a really good experience and learnt a lot from Hull Training and Adult Education and the University of Hull. My tutors have been fantastic”.
Sharon Gamble, Head of Service for Hull Training and Adult Education said: “We are currently living in unprecedented times and we hear on a daily basis how difficult it is for young people to gain employment.
“Hannah demonstrated a wide range of knowledge, skills and behaviours during her EPA. The EPA represents a key element of the Hull Training and Adult Education apprenticeship scheme and she should be extremely proud of her hard work and achievements.
“Apprenticeships offer an ideal opportunity to learn essential and transferable skills which provide the building blocks for a long and successful career. We are seeing a real commitment from local employers to take on apprentices and I will look forward to seeing our learner’s progress within their chosen careers”.
