Work Based Tutor – Engineering


The Work Based Tutor will train apprentices across a wide range of skills, knowledge and behaviors to enable them to pass the End Point Assessment. The tutor will develop and deliver highly inspirational teaching and training resources and will be expected to facilitate a structured learning programme, providing feedback during formative assessment periods. Using an e-portfolio system, the tutor will evidence and review progress to date across all aspects of the Apprenticeship.  For some apprentices, there is an expectation that the tutor will support the development of maths and English.

It is the WBT’s responsibility to ensure that all components of the apprenticeship standard are completed accurately and timely.
