What is End Point Assessment?

In order to complete their Apprenticeship standard, which have been designed by employers to meet the needs of a particular role in their relevant industry, learners must undertake an assessment which tests the knowledge, skills and behaviours required. This assessment is undertaken at the end of the apprenticeship and is called an end point assessment.

Each apprenticeship standard includes:

  • A two page summary giving an overview of the required knowledge, skills and behaviours required to complete the apprenticeship  
  • An assessment plan which gives a detailed breakdown of the assessments undertaken at end point, to test that the apprentice has reached the required level to complete the programme.

End point assessment is separate to any qualifications or other assessment that the apprentice may undertake during training. The apprentice will not be able to complete the apprenticeship without passing the end point assessment. As well as being different from the delivery of the apprenticeship, the end point assessment must be undertaken by an assessor that has had no previous contact or involvement in the delivery of training to the learner prior to the end point assessment.
