Completing Your Apprenticeship

Gateway

Once you’ve completed your on-programme training you will go through Gateway. This is where we agree with you and your line manager that you have acquired the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard and are ready to undertake end point assessment.

End Point Assessment (EPA)

EPA is the process at the end of your programme for you to demonstrate to a third-party assessor that you have acquired knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSB’s) throughout your training set out in the Apprenticeship standard.

The EPA will be carried out by an End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO). The EPAO is an impartial organisation which takes responsibility for the final assessment of the apprentice against the requirements of their apprenticeship.

Your Assessment

During EPA, you will complete the following:

You will prepare and develop a case for support in the form of a case pitch. It will be based on a real pitch carried out in the employer’s workplace or an appropriate facility as part of the apprentice’s typical activities.

You will also create a presentation based on the case for support pitch which will be presented to an independent assessor, with follow up questioning immediately after the presentation.

This assessment will take the form of a 75 minute structured professional discussion with an independent assessor. You will use your portfolio to support your responses.
