Level 3 Dental Nurse apprenticeship standard, which includes:

  • Level 2 functional skills in maths and English (if required)
  • End-Point Assessment (EPA)

There will be 6-10 sessions that will require college attendance at our Walsall Campus, during the training period.

Full-time apprentices will typically spend 15 months on-programme (before the gateway) working towards the occupational standard, with a minimum of 20% off the-job training. As this vacancy is not a full-time apprenticeship, the duration has been extended.

The purpose of the End-Point Assessment (EPA) is to test that an apprentice is fully capable of doing their job before they receive their apprenticeship certificate. It also helps to demonstrate that what an apprentice has learned can be applied in the real world.

The focus is now on the outcome of an apprenticeship and apprentices have to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours that employers have identified they need.
