Apprenticeship Skills Scan

The Skills Scan is an online assessment that is completed by every apprenticeship applicant and their line manager at the application stage.

The aim of the Skills Scan is to make sure that the apprenticeship will meet the knowledge, skills and behaviour requirements of the apprentice, and match the business needs of the employer.

What is the Skills Scan?

Hult Ashridge has developed a tool that links directly to the knowledge skills and behaviours relating to the apprenticeship. The apprentice will score themselves and their line manager will also score them, on a scale of 1 to 6 (1, having prior experience to 6, being fully competent).

The skills scans are unique to each apprenticeship and can be used by employers to identify the skills shortages within the organisation or department and to pre-assess the suitability of employees to join the apprenticeship.

Demonstrating Development Outcomes

Every apprenticeship applicant and their line manager are required to complete the online Skills Scan. To get the funding for the apprenticeship, the Skills Scan must show that the apprenticeship programme selected will provide a minimum of 50% new learning for the apprentice.

Beyond the application process and throughout the apprenticeship, the learner and their line manager will repeat the process to demonstrate the development of their knowledge, skills and behaviours.
