In this webinar we will examine 'what makes a good Portfolio?' and Portfolio building techniques, to help Training Providers and Employers understand how to navigate one of the most commonly failed and often misunderstood assessment methods.

We will be sharing best practice and insights to develop a considered and consistent approach to creating a strong Portfolio of evidence.

Our Head of Apprenticeships, Jake Tween, will be joined by Laura Hopwood, Head of Programme Design at BPP, who will be providing relevant examples of how this works in practice.

We will also be sharing our own tips from the perspective of an EPAO, gained through 2 years of EPA delivery.

This is the second in a series of webinars designed to help Training Providers and Employers navigate the EPA process, plan for success and understand the key actions they can take to prepare Apprentices pre-Gateway.
