Introduction to the course
Well designed and enforced regulation plays a vital role in improving the way markets work for the benefit of business, employees and citizens, supporting sustainable growth, trade and investment and improved social and environmental outcomes. It is well recognised that the regulatory climate is a key contributor to the creation of a positive and supportive business environment whilst also assuring public and environmental protection.
The role of a Regulatory Compliance Officer involves undertaking risk assessments, carrying out investigations and compiling formal reports. Apprentices will develop their skills to investigate complaints and incidents and their ability to work effectively with partner agencies. They will also develop their understanding of the benefits of promoting compliance and they will become skilled at following up on actions and evaluating effectiveness.
Learners will be assigned a dedicated tutor to help them develop their knowledge, skills and required behaviours. They will also be supported to compile a portfolio of their work to showcase their abilities in advance of the independent assessment. Assessment is undertaken by exam, observation in the workplace and by a professional interview.
Apprentices must achieve Level 2 English and Mathematics prior to end point assessment.
What are the entry requirements?
As with most apprenticeships, the entry requirements are set by the employer. A level 3 qualification or prior experience is preferred.
The RCO provides an excellent grounding for a professional career with a Regulator or a senior role as a Compliance Officer in business. Additional technical knowledge will equip you to specialise in a service area or sector.
