End Point Assessment FAQs

What Is End Point Assessment?

End Point Assessment is a crucial component for all apprentices on the new apprenticeship standards and is required at the end of each course.

When learning is complete, each learner is put forward for End Point Assessment, otherwise known as an independent assessment which tests whether the learner has met the several knowledge, skills and behaviour components (KSBs) required within each standard. Following EPA, each apprentice will receive a grade and a pass or fail decision.

How Is End Point Assessment Conducted?

End Point Assessment is outlined in the assessment plans detailed within each Apprenticeship Standard.

The plan itself must include what’s being assessed and what assessment methods should be used – such as examinations, testing, discussions, observations in the workplace and assignments or a portfolio of work.

What is Apprenticeship Gateway?

When the apprentice in question has completed on programme learning, the apprentice, provider and the employer need to reach agreement regarding learner readiness to take EPA.

The ‘gateway’ is the moment between this agreement being made and conducting the end point assessment. Depending on the assessment and End Point Assessor availability, gateway can last anywhere between a week and a few months and therefore requires forward-planning.
