At the 2020 FESS Apprenticeship Standard Conference, training providers stated it would be useful to have something to communicate with employers at the start of the apprenticeship to explain areas such as pathways, end point assessment, the three-year process and so on. This example Employer Guide has been kindly shared by Banham Academy; you may wish to draw ideas from this document to create your own communication material for employers.
