As most of your time will be spent learning in the workplace, employers/line managers have a critical role to play in the success of an apprenticeship. Your line manager’s responsibilities towards you include ensuring exposure to the experiences needed to absorb the KSBs of your chosen apprenticeship. This could take the form of client interaction, peer learning, industry processes et cetera.
Your employer/line manager will help us track your progress by proactively participating in your formal reviews and providing regular feedback about how you’re progressing and meeting your course objectives. The Line Manager Responsibilities infographic illustrates what you can expect from us, from your line manager, and also what’s expected of you as the apprentice.
Your employer/line manager will also ensure that you are employed for at least the duration required to complete your apprenticeship, including the end-point assessment, and that you have everything you need to complete your work safely and effectively. They may also appoint a workplace mentor or, for Chartered Surveyor apprenticeships only, a RICS-qualified Counsellor to support you.
