NSG offer this apprenticeship with an ILM Level 3 Diploma for Managers to achieve the ‘on course’ part of the programme. This is followed by the End Point Assessment (EPA) which is independently assessed by an awarding body to give you a Pass/Merit/Distinction grading for your overall Apprenticeship. NSG work with two awarding bodies for EPA – The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). The decision as to which one to choose rests with the employer. Full guidance and support is available throughout the Apprenticeship from our team.
