Initial needs assessment guidance for apprentices

Please download and complete a copy of the relevant Initial Needs Assessment document for your apprenticeship. We are interested in looking at the skills, knowledge and behaviours that you may bring to your apprenticeship.

If possible, please complete this along with your apprenticeship line manager as it is important to include their thoughts in this assessment. If this is not possible it is okay to complete this on your own. Your line manager does not need to sign this form.

Please be honest when answering the questions. Do not worry if you have no evidence or experience in all or some areas. This will not affect you receiving an offer for your course as long as you meet the entry requirements for your course.

If you think you do have relevant experience or evidence to meet some of the knowledge, skills or behaviours, please describe how you meet these as fully as you can. If you assess yourself to be fully competent in a certain area you will be asked to submit evidence to support this assessment. We advise that you do this when returning this form to our Admissions team to avoid any delays.

ARU will assess your answers to establish whether we can credit you for your existing knowledge, skills or behaviours. This may reduce the cost and duration of your apprenticeship. You may be asked to complete an interview with a Course Admissions Tutor to discuss your answers. Any credit that you may be entitled to will be confirmed in the offer letter you receive from us.
