End Point Assessments (Apprenticeships)

IAT education offers a tailored EPA depending on the needs and setting of the apprentice. EPAs can be delivered in person or remotely and the method of delivery will be agreed with both the learning provider and employer before the apprentice is submitted for gateway.

What is an End Point Assessment?

The purpose of an end point assessment (EPA) is to test that an apprentice is fully capable of doing their job before they receive their apprenticeship certificate. It also helps to demonstrate that what an apprentice has learned can be applied in the real world.

Which EPAs does IAT Education offer and what do they consist of?

The EPA consists of two distinct methods:
  • Practical Assessment (weighting 50%); an observation of the apprentice completing one practical assessment consisting of two tasks of practical skill in which the Apprentices will demonstrate their Skills, Behaviours and underlying Knowledge, as required by the Standard
  • Professional Discussion (weighting 50%); this will take the form of a professional discussion and Portfolio review that will cover all areas of underpinning and applied Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours. The portfolio will not be assessed or graded.
Performance in the EPA will determine the apprenticeship grade of fail, pass or distinction.
