Individuals will undertake a Level 2 diagnostic assessment for maths and English prior to enrolment. Individuals will need to achieve a minimum of a 50% score in both subjects to ensure a place on the apprenticeship programme or, if individuals have passed maths and English GCSE with a grade A* to C or key skills at Level 2, they will be required to evidence this with certificate/s which will then result in exemption from undertaking the maths and English functional skill qualification.

Individuals will also have to complete a free writing exercise to provide evidence to demonstrate grammar and spelling.
