Initial assessments help you to find out about learners as individuals, and to identify needs and potential for obstacles to an apprenticeship. We use them to identify and plan for individual needs and understand learner motivation.
Diagnostic assessments evaluate a learner's skills, knowledge, strengths and areas for development in a particular subject area. We use them to check a learner has the right level of skills needed to take on an apprenticeship. For most programmes this means proving an apprentice has the right level of skills in English, maths, and information and communication technology (ICT).
Diagnostic assessment identify gaps in skills, knowledge and understanding to highlight areas to work on, as well as helping prove previous experience, knowledge, achievements and transferable skills.
