Essential Skills in Communication and Application of Number are a mandatory part of apprenticeship programmes in Wales.
Essential Skills are taken at Level 1 and at Level 2, dependant on your prior achievement in these areas; Level 1 is taken as a mandatory part of the Level 2 apprenticeship programme and Level 2 is undertaken as part of the Level 3 apprenticeship programme unless you have already achieved these levels or equivalents previously.
Within both of these essential skills, there is a control task and a confirmatory test. The control task is a controlled assessment undertaken in exam conditions in short periods of time across an 8-week time frame. The confirmatory test is a multiple-choice paper of 30 questions. You will be fully prepared for both elements by your Trainer-Coach.
You will be regularly assessed in the workplace by your Trainer- Coaches with testimonies from your Employer/Trainer. Case studies, pictures/videos and some written assignments/workbooks may also be used by your Assessor to check your knowledge and understanding.
