Teaching & learning resources

We have a wide range of resources available for providers and employers to support you in delivering apprenticeships.

Our teaching and learning resources are available across current apprenticeships and the new Trailblazer apprenticeships (England).

The available resources will vary depending on the specific apprenticeship, but will include a combination of some, or all, of the following:


Our qualifications



Our qualifications include competency-based qualifications and our new Technical Qualifications. All are designed to meet the requirements of current apprenticeship Frameworks and the new Trailblazer apprenticeship Standards.

e-volve centre  analytics

e-volve is a web-based assessment tool for providers.

It’s been designed to help you administer your assessment delivery easily and efficiently.

With e-volve, you can conduct assessments anywhere at anytime whilst receiving instant performance feedback and instantly generating certificates.

Sample Assessments

We’ve produced a series of sample assessments so that your tutors and learners can experience the look and feel of e-volve prior to the actual assessment. These samples also give an idea of the type and style of question that will be asked in the assessment.

On completion of the sample assessment, we’ll give you the result (pass/ fail/ percentage) and you can also view a report containing feedback on the results.

e-volve centre analytics is a new, free, online, results analysis tool for centres using e-volve.

e-volve centre analytics gives in-depth analysis of your learners' performance in e-volve assessments.

You can analyse assessment results by date ranges, qualifications and units, and you can view in various easy-to-understand layouts and then export your data.
