How does the EPA process for this apprenticeship Standard work?

The EPA must be completed over a maximum total assessment time of two days, within a three-month period, after the apprentice has met the EPA gateway requirements. EPA must be conducted by an organisation approved to offer services against this standard, as selected by the employer, from the Education & Skills Funding Agency’s Register of End Point Assessment Organisations. The EPA consists of two distinct assessment methods:


• Observation of Leadership
• Professional discussion


It is a requirement for the learner to be able to demonstrate in both end point assessment methods, that throughout the course of the Apprenticeship, they have achieved the required knowledge but have also been able to put this into practice through the evidence of the skills and behaviours. Apprentices should demonstrate this through giving authentic examples of how they have applied these skills. Performance in the EPA will determine the apprenticeship grade of fail, pass or distinction.
