Evaluation strategies


The evaluation strategies might be delivered in any order.

The results of one evaluation technique doesn’t have to be recognized earlier than beginning the following.


Technical venture report and presentation with questioning


Overview

A venture includes the apprentice finishing a big and outlined piece of labor that has an actual enterprise software and profit. The venture should begin after the apprentice has gone by means of the gateway.

The technical venture report and presentation with questioning have to be structured to present the apprentice the chance to display the KSBs mapped to this EPA technique to the best obtainable grade.

The venture should meet the wants of the employer’s enterprise and be related to the apprentice’s occupation and apprenticeship. The EPAO should affirm that it supplies the apprentice with the chance to display the KSBs mapped to this EPA technique to the best obtainable grade. The EPAO should seek advice from the grading descriptors to make sure that initiatives are pitched appropriately.

This EPA technique consists of 2 parts:

  • venture with a venture output
  • presentation with questions and solutions.

The venture and any parts have to be assessed holistically by the impartial assessor when they’re deciding the grade for this EPA technique.

Rationale

This EPA technique is getting used as a result of the technical venture displays an employer’s constructing providers engineering challenges and is typical of the apprentice’s on a regular basis work, guaranteeing that they will display KSBs in apply. As a part of a constructing providers engineering senior technician’s position, they are going to be anticipated to plan and perform technical initiatives, utilizing acceptable engineering rules, theories, processes, and superior mathematical and knowledge evaluation expertise, earlier than evaluating and proposing acceptable constructing engineering options, with consideration for a spread of things, again to varied audiences by means of experiences, shows and discussions. Due to this fact, this technique of evaluation is deemed as probably the most acceptable for this occupation because it precisely displays the environments and present office duties of the apprentice. The technical venture report, presentation and questioning enable for efficient evaluation of the KSBs assigned to this evaluation technique.

Part 1: Undertaking with a venture output

Supply

Apprentices should full a venture which can be primarily based on any of the next:

  • a selected downside
  • a recurring situation
  • an concept or alternative.

The EPAO should present detailed specs with what have to be included within the venture to permit an apprentice to proof the KSBs mapped to the EPA technique to the best obtainable grade.

The venture output have to be within the type of a report.

The apprentice should begin the venture after the gateway. They need to full and submit the report back to the EPAO after a most of 6 weeks. The employer ought to make sure the apprentice has the time and assets inside this era, to plan and full their venture. The apprentice should full their venture and the manufacturing of all its parts unaided.

The apprentice may go as a part of a workforce which may embrace technical inner or exterior help. Nevertheless, the venture output have to be the apprentice’s personal work and will probably be reflective of their very own position and contribution. The apprentice and their employer should affirm that the venture output(s) is the apprentice’s personal work when it’s submitted.

The report should embrace at the very least:

Apprentices will undertake a technical venture after they’ve handed the gateway and produce a report that appropriately covers all the KSBs assigned to this technique of evaluation.

The EPAO will situation the technical venture transient to the apprentice at gateway aligned to their engineering specialism.

The technical venture transient will mirror an actual work-based constructing providers engineering problem in a topic space, offering a give attention to an space similar to:

  • mechanical engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • mechanical and electrical engineering (M&E)
  • public well being engineering
  • vitality and constructing administration techniques
  • setting and sustainability in constructing providers engineering
  • services administration
  • constructing providers engineering contracting
  • constructing providers engineering manufacturing

The technical venture transient, designed and issued by the EPAO, will usually be 500 phrases in size. The EPAO will design and situation steerage with the technical transient.

Technical venture experiences should embrace:

  • an introduction
  • the scope of the venture
  • key efficiency indicators
  • a venture plan, methodology and timeline for key duties
  • analysis and findings:
    • knowledge assortment, evaluation and analysis acceptable to the technical venture and degree of apprenticeship

  • conclusions

The apprentice should put together a technical venture report with appendices of supporting proof regarding the technical venture. The technical venture report and all appendices of supporting proof straight demonstrating efficiency of KSBs have to be attributable in full. Proof have to be accompanied by a witness assertion outlining the apprentice’s contribution, signed by the apprentice and their employer authenticating it.

Examples of appendices of supporting proof might embrace:

  • plans
  • diagrams
  • calculations
  • designs
  • suggestions
  • video clips

This isn’t a definitive listing and different proof sources other than self-reflection are permissible..

To permit the apprentice to use for skilled registration on completion of the apprenticeship, two impartial assessors should holistically assess all evaluation strategies, in step with the impartial assessor necessities set out on this plan. They may have equal accountability in grading the evaluation. Using two impartial assessors will allow the availability of steadiness to evaluation, to herald larger breadth and depth of technical experience to questioning and dialogue with the apprentice, elucidating extra correct grading choices.

Within the occasion that the 2 impartial assessors can not agree on whether or not to grade the technical venture and presentation with a go, fail or distinction, the EPAO is required to reasonable in accordance with their moderation procedures. The EPAO will then make the ultimate resolution on the grade to award primarily based on the evaluation proof introduced.

The venture report has a most phrase depend of 3500 phrases. A tolerance of 10% above or under the phrase depend is allowed on the apprentice’s discretion. Appendices, references and diagrams aren’t included on this complete. The venture report should map, in an appendix, the way it evidences the related KSBs mapped to this EPA technique.

Part 2: Presentation with questioning

Supply

It is a formal presentation the place an apprentice will current to an impartial assessor on a set topic. The impartial assessor should ask questions. Apprentices should put together, submit and ship a presentation. The presentation is restricted to the KSBs allotted to this EPA technique as proven within the mapping part of this doc.

The presentation and questioning should final half-hour It will usually embrace a presentation of 10 minutes and questioning lasting 20 minutes.

The impartial assessor should ask at the very least 5 questions. They need to use the questions from the EPAO’s query financial institution or create their very own questions in-line with the EPAO’s coaching. Observe up questions are allowed the place clarification is required.

The presentation will present an outline of the apprentice’s venture and the presentation with questions and solutions. Unbiased assessors will ask questions after the presentation. All shows should embrace at the very least:

  • an outline of the venture
  • the venture scope (together with key efficiency indicators)
  • abstract of actions undertaken by the apprentice
