What is the End Point Assessment? (EPA)
The End Point Assessment is a holistic and independent assessment of the knowledge, skills and behaviours, gained throughout the apprenticeship.1 Each apprenticeship standard will set out the requirements for the EPA
When do Apprentices take the EPA?
Apprentices will only be able to undertake the EPA once they have been on programme for the minimum duration of the apprenticeship and have met all the gateway requirements, which are set out in the apprenticeship standard.
What will the EPA consist off?
Each apprenticeship standard will have different requirements to complete the EPA. Examples of these are, portfolio of work, professional discussion, work based presentation, work based observation knowledge test and an interview.
Most EPA centres will provide practice resources, mock tests and more to prepare learners fully for their EPA.
