Help required - Regulatory Compliance officer Apprenticeship Standard
South West Councils have been approved to deliver End-Point Assessment for the relatively new Regulatory Compliance Officer apprenticeship Standard.  We are currently in the process of producing the assessment materials and the Assessors’ guidance and we need subject matter experts to help write these.

What we require is a subject matter expert to quality assure the bank of questions we have written and to add to this bank by producing additional questions.

We also require a subject matter experts to help to create observation scenarios (and marking guidance) based on an exemplar we can provide to cover the full range of occupational areas that this apprenticeship Standard covers.

We can offer a fee of £175 per day and will discuss and agree specific outcomes with anyone who might be interested.  We would like to have the work completed by the end of May 2019.
