    All our Business Trainer-Coaches are experts in this industry and will be on hand to support you throughout your apprenticeship. They will check your knowledge and understanding through a variety of methods including assignments, workbooks, tailored resources, and observations before agreeing with you and your employer that you are ready to take your final end point assessment.
