Each apprentice will be asked to prepare a VIVA presentation. The subject of the presentation can be selected by the apprentice but the content must reflect practitioner level understanding in that area. Typically this presentation will be based upon work competed and captured in the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence.
The following to be included if relevant
The VIVA presentation is expected to be 20 to 30 minutes long followed by up to 30 minutes of questioning from the assessment panel.
Assessment will be made on quality, clarity and the demonstration of using systems engineering principles, processes and methods and a systems approach in the workplace.
The purpose of the presentation is to:
- Convince and give confidence to the panel that all necessary competencies have been obtained (by demonstrating and talking about a sample selection),
- Probe the knowledge of the apprentice in a particular area,
- Probe the apprentice’s general systems engineering understanding and application.
