Trade Supplier apprenticeship standard

Trade suppliers are critical to the flow of goods and services between manufacturers and trade customers

The Trade Supplier apprenticeship standard has been designed for those involved across a variety of sectors including electrical, plumbing, joinery and general building supplies. Trade Suppliers operate small warehouse and trade counters regularly visited by professional trade customers who have technical knowledge about what they are buying.

The end-point assessment for Trade Supplier is regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation, Ofqual.

What are the end-point assessment requirements

End-point assessment involves three components:

  1. A knowledge test that can be taken in the workplace or at an assessment centre
  2. A practical assessment of 3-hour carried out in the workplace that will observe the apprentice carrying out a set of activities
  3. A professional discussion of 1-hour supported by a portfolio or evidence.

It will result in a combined grade of a pass, merit or distinction.
