Team Leader/Supervisor

A Team Leader Supervisor is a natural leader. They manage people, operations, projects and more to deliver tangible outcomes for their company. As a team leader supervisor, a successful apprentice will be in charge of determining their team’s direction and utilising their best qualities to achieve the company’s goals.

The ability to lead and supervise a team is applicable to almost every industry. People who complete this apprenticeship will have skills to take them into a wide range of positions in the public, private and third sectors. An apprentice’s key duties could include, but are by no means limited to, supporting, managing and developing team members, managing projects, planning and monitoring workloads and resources, delivering operational plans, resolving problems and building relationships within and outside the business.

End-Point Assessment Components

  • Presentation with questions and answers
  • Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence

Presentation with questions and answers

Apprentices will prepare and deliver a presentation to the End-Point Assessor (followed by questions and answers) based on topic(s) covered within the apprenticeship. The presentation should provide a summary of their role as a Team Leader and what they do and how this is relevant to their role and organisation. It should focus on how they tackle current topics and will cover all Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours assigned to this component. A title will be provided for the presentation to be based around.

Once the title has been set, the Apprentice has two weeks in which to prepare and submit a copy of their presentation. The presentation will occur within four weeks of the title being set.

The presentation will ordinarily last for 20 minutes and the questioning will typically last for 30 minutes for a total time of 50 minutes (plus 10% at the discretion of the End-Point Assessor).

This assessment is graded Distinction/Pass/Fail.

Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence

This assessment is a two-way structured discussion focusing on the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours aligned to this assessment component.

The Professional Discussion will be underpinned by a Portfolio of Evidence submitted at Gateway. The portfolio will not be directly assessed by the End-Point Assessor, but will be reviewed in preparation for the Professional Discussion.

The Professional Discussion will last for 60 minutes (plus 10% at the discretion of the End-Point Assessor to allow the Apprentice time to complete their final answer).

This assessment is graded Distinction/Pass/Fail.

*25% registration fee is transferrable to a new registration should an Apprentice withdraw from the apprenticeship. Upon receipt Apprentices, Employers and Training Providers will gain access to the TQUK EPA management suite.

**75% fee paid at gateway in non-refundable as we anticipate that once the apprentice has passed through gateway they will be ready to undertake the end-point assessment elements. If the 75% payable upon gateway is not paid within 30 days of invoice we, as the EPAO, will put a hold on any end-point assessment activities being undertaken and any certification processes.
