East of England Co-Op Apprenticeship Case Study Fareport have been working with East of England Co-Op for over 5 years on Retail Apprenticeships level 3 & 4 (Retail Team Leader and Retail Manager). They have a set introduction to the apprenticeship programme where they have formal meetings with Learning and Development. They discuss commitment, programme induction and complete assessments before being accepted to come onto programme. They are accepted based on their performance on the induction to ensure they have the attitude and are in the right role to complete their apprenticeship. We have had more than 5 cohorts with them with another 2 planned in for this year. The programme is actively supported by Effie Burrell from Co-op and she works closely with our dedicated Trainer in the East of England.

"Fareport Training’s supportive and collaborative approach has resulted in all our Apprentices passing EPA first time, with 46% achieving distinction."
Emma J - Retail Team Leader Level 3
"The apprenticeship programme has been full of ups and downs but it is all worth it. It has given me a wealth of knowledge about the industry that I work in and the processes that we follow on a daily basis. My top tips for your End Point Assessment would be to be organised and prepared. Know exactly what you want to achieve and create a clear plan. I found prompt cards a key tool for success. You will only get out what you put in so give it your all."
