 Apprenticeship Delivery 

The synoptic EPA has become a core feature of new apprenticeship standards because it assesses the apprentice’s performance across the whole standard rather than for individual tasks

The End-Point Assessment is planned with the Independent End-Point Assessor, Employer and Apprentice

The End-Point assessment consists of four elements:

·       Scenario based Multiple Choice Knowledge Test 

·       Competency-Based Interview 

·       Assessment of Portfolio of Evidence

·       Professional Discussion relating to CPD activity Including any additional learning and CPD evidence

 All assessments may be completed online. All assessments need to be passed. Each assessment method directly assesses the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the Standard. The assessment is then graded.
