Know Your Potential Consultancy (KYP) is a recognised market leader in the delivery of HSC & CYP Apprenticeship care training throughout the UK.

KYP  has been accredited to the matrix Standard, demonstrating the high quality service delivery KYP provides impartial, responsive, friendly and enabling information, advice and guidance services to learners.

Basic skills, digital skills, employability and transversal/soft skills are crucial in preparing young people for an apprenticeship and for building successful careers. This practical resource will enable pre-apprenticeship providers to develop and enhance their programmes to ensure that young people are equipped with the key skills they need for the future’

KYP determines the Apprenticeship learning module to be assessed (e.g., application of theory to practice and discipline-specific soft skills) and what kind of evidence of learning can be used.

Identifying the students need to achieve and be clear about what will be measured, taking into account any accreditation or certification requirements. Agree on who is involved in the assessment process and clarify roles in terms of how stakeholders will be involved, whether this be in only some aspects of assessment (i.e., host supervisor involved in formative assessment only).

KYP provides support and training for anyone involved in assessment as stakeholders may be unfamiliar with the aspect of learning, situation of learning and/or some of the methods used for assessment.

Consider the situation/context of learning which will vary between students and ensure the assessment package is flexible and realistic enough to account for variations while also being equitable to all students.


‘’I would like to thank you for all of the support you gave me when working through my Diploma with KYP. I found our sessions very helpful and your knowledge was invaluable in explaining things that were unclear at first. The times I got bit stuck and emailed you, you would always get back to me which made me feel very supported. I have learned a great deal from the course and would heartily recommend KYP to anyone that was looking to study the Health and Social Care Diplomas that you provide. Many thanks indeed.’’

‘’KYP has supported me to obtain my apprenticeship in Residential Childcare and it has helped with my career. My Assessor was Vanessa Hill and she was excellent and I could not have done it without her. She gave me regular feedback and helped me to make amendments so I could learn more about my job. She also ran workshops which were useful and gave me more knowledge. The support was there 24/7 and I must say that without this I would have struggled and its the best course and the best assessor I have ever had’’

‘’ I have just completed my level 3 diploma in residential care. I completed this course within the year and I was supported by Vanessa. She is a credit to the award body and I appreciate all of her support. She was always there if I needed her and She never made me feel like I was a burden. She pushed me when I need that extra push and for that I have nothing but praise. The support sessions are well worth attending because you are able to complete a unit or two within the session. Overall a good course with outstanding support’’

‘’Marnie was assigned as my assessor part way through my course at a point that I was struggling and had a tight deadline to complete the course. I just wanted to say am eternally grateful for her commitment, support and the way that she recognised my learning style and adapted her approach to help me successfully complete the course. I feel that she went above and beyond always being available at the end of the telephone or over email to respond to my queries. Completing the course around my position as a registered home manager was hard work! Marnie worked with me setting completion goals and keeping me motivated to achieve them. She also spent addition one to one time with me which helped me to set the time aside to keep me focused as that was the only way I felt I could get through it at times! Just having her there to sound out what the question wanted from me exactly and my thoughts on how I should be answering the questions was invaluable.’’
