About the role

Coming soon: this EPA will be available in spring 2024.

This apprenticeship standard is designed typically as a 18 to 24 month programme and is for apprentices who wish to gain the skills, knowledge and behavioural competences required to work in a Human Resources (HR) support role.

Taking this apprenticeship will enable professionals to move into exciting roles such as Management Consultant and Training and Development Officer. Those working in the HR function of an organisation have responsibilities in recruitment, retirement, record-keeping and supporting the business through HR changes. 

Apprentices will be able to answer day-to-day HR queries and provide guidance for their colleagues on company policy and legal compliance.

Our EPA for this standard will give you and your apprentices the tools and support you need for success.





In order to meet the apprenticeship standard apprentices will be required to hold or achieve:

  • A minimum of Level 2 maths and Level 2 English

Apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the end-point assessment.

For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement the apprenticeship’s English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3 and British Sign Language qualification is an alternative to English qualifications for whom this is their primary language.


As both a vocational and academic awarding organisation, we can offer a wide range of English and maths qualifications in line with your standards’ requirements from Functional Skills through to GCSEs.
