After you have completed all the on-programme assessment requirements for your apprenticeship, including Maths and English, you will have arrived at the Gateway; the final element of the programme where you will be entered for your end-point assessment. Like an industry trade test; this assessment will test your knowledge and practical skills in a salon environment and be examined by an impartial external assessor.
