Work Based Project

The work-based project is a substantial piece of work to be undertaken towards the end of the Apprentice. The project must bring together elements of learning from different parts of the programme and show evidence of accumulated knowledge and understanding of management, and the application of these within their organisation. The project must meet the Standard and demonstrate the approach taken to the planning and completion of the project.

Because of the significance of the project, the employer and Provider must work together with the apprentice to agree a project that is achievable within the employer’s business constraints whilst meeting the needs of the Standard. The project should be conducted as part of the apprentice’s normal work. The employer should make allowances, in terms of time and resource, for the project to be undertaken. Any elements which need to be undertaken outside of normal work should be agreed between the employer, apprentice and Provider so that apprentices are not disadvantaged in any way from performing their job and meeting the requirements of the project.

Design of project
A specification must be devised of what has to be delivered on completion of the project – this must include the outputs, project plans etc.

  • Terms of reference must be developed by the apprentice and agreed by the provider and employer • Approach to the problem, solution design and implementation, the final report and presentation.
  • Apprentices must document their assumptions and highlight the consequences of these assumptions – enabling them to demonstrate their understanding of commercial pressures and the application of their thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Agreement to be made between the apprentice, employer and provider on what systems, tools and platforms will be required (if any) to complete the tasks and how these will be made available.

Delivery of project

  • Providers must work with the employer and apprentice to agree the project title and support arrangements required to enable the project to be undertaken.
  • The project should normally be based on an agreed business problem that forms part of the apprentice’s role.
  • Suitable time should be set aside by the employer for the apprentice to plan, undertake and write up their project.
  • The apprentice will first work out what is required and present terms of reference and an initial plan for agreement with the employer and provider.
  • The project will typically be undertaken at the employers premises.
  • The employer and provider will ensure that the apprentice has access to the tools and systems required to complete the tasks within the project.
  • The apprentice will provide a signed statement to confirm the project is their own work.
  • The project will be set and completed during the final 6 months of the apprenticeship.

 

Requirements for the project environment

  • A suitable project environment should be provided ensuring access to all required tools and systems. This may be the apprentices’ normal place of work/work station, or another environment suitable for the project.
  • Someone responsible for managing the project from the employer perspective.
  • Someone from the provider to oversee and provide support to the apprentice.

The project should be conducted as part of the apprentice’s normal work. The employer should make allowance, in terms of time and resource, for the project to be undertaken. Any elements which need to be undertaken outside of normal work should be agreed between the employer, apprentice and training provider so that apprentices are not disadvantaged in any way from performing their job and meeting the requirements of the project.

Along with the portfolio, the work-based project will contribute towards the achievement of the degree, the assessment for Chartered Manager and will also be reviewed as part of the end-point assessment for the CMDA. Successful completion of the degree is required for the apprentice to progress to the end-point assessment. This is confirmed during the next stage which is the Gateway Process to endpoint assessment described.
