The broad purpose of the occupation is to cut specified material components by hand or by machine using templates or measurements and then prepare the components for assembly. In preparation for cutting, a material cutter will select the materials following instructions, check the materials for quality issues, and plan, measure and calculate material usage ensuring waste minimalisation. They are then ready to cut components to meet the required quality, quantity, and specifications.
They have a role in ensuring effective handover to the next stage, including bundling and labelling and completing records and documentation such as production/cutting sheets or work dockets.
Apprentices will need to achieve the relevant English and mathematics prior to undertaking their End-Point Assessment. From August 2022 people who start a Level 2 apprenticeship without Level 1 English and Maths will no longer need to automatically attempt Level 2 English and Maths tests to complete their apprenticeship.
Apprentices will need to produce a portfolio of evidence that underpins one of the assessments.
The Apprentice will be assessed against the Material Cutter Assessment Plan requirements. The three methods of assessment are:
- Observation with questions
- Interview underpinned by a Portfolio of Evidence
- Multiple-choice Test
The assessment plan can be found here.
