HR Professionals in this role are typically either working in a medium to large organisation as part of the HR function delivering front line support to managers and employees, or are a HR Manager in a small organisation. Their work is likely to include handling day to day queries and providing HR advice; working on a range of HR processes, ranging from transactional to relatively complex, from recruitment through to retirement; using HR systems to keep records; providing relevant HR information to the business; working with the business on HR changes.
They will typically be taking ownership for providing advice to managers on a wide range of HR issues using company policy and current law, giving guidance that is compliant and where errors could expose the organisation to employment tribunals or legal risk. In a larger organisation they may also have responsibility for managing a small team – this aspect is outside the scope of this apprenticeship and will need to be covered separately by the employer.
The End Point Assessment (EPA) will only commence once the Employer, Apprentice, and Protocol Consultancy Services are confident that the apprentice has developed all the knowledge, skills, and behaviours defined in the apprenticeship standard.

The EPA can commence at any point once the apprentice is competent and after the twelve-month minimum period of learning and development. However, before the independent EPA can take place, the apprentice must have completed their functional skills components in English and Maths.
This apprenticeship requires the development of the following professional knowledge, skills, and behaviours:
The apprentice must receive off-the-job training for a minimum of 20% of the time that they are paid to work.
