Learner of the Month

Tim Hewitt – Team Leader Supervisor Level 3
Tim signed up to start his Team Leader Apprenticeship through the employer as a way of developing his skills and to help him further his career with his Employer Nottingham City Council. Little did he know how things would change, as two weeks after he signed up the Covid pandemic hit and the world was locked down. Tim adapted very well to this, attending online training sessions and completing all work set for him to an excellent standard. Tim is an extremely focused and organised individual, and the feedback from his Managers and Peers throughout Tim’s course has been excellent. Tim has now taken on more tasks and has now been promoted to a more senior level within his team taking on more projects.
Tim’s hard work has paid off as he recently undertook his End Point Assessment (EPA) with ILM and achieved a Distinction grade – the highest grade possible. When asked about his EPA Tim commented;
‘The End Point Assessment is about verbally confirming to the assessor what you will have learnt during the course of the Apprenticeship and how you plan to apply that in practical terms and where that may take you in the future. The discussion is centred around your Reflective Journal and Portfolio of Evidence, so in essence is about what you have already done also, without even necessarily realising.’
Well done Tim, the result is a testament to your hard work and dedication throughout the course!
