End Point Assessment (EPA) happens on completion of the on- training and assessment stage. Apprentices bring together the knowledge, skills and behaviors learnt through the training stage to demonstrate that they are competent and can perform their roles to the national standard set out in the apprenticeship assessment plan. 

End-point-assessment is conducted and graded by the Awarding Body’s Independent Assessor. The Apprenticeship Certificate is awarded after successful completion of the EPA.

The assessment for EPA contains two assessments methods:

  • Situational Judgement Test – a written test based on nine work-based scenarios within a children’s health and social care context. The outcome will highlight the apprentice’s competence in the application of the knowledge criteria outlined in the apprenticeship standard.
  • Competence Interview – the interview is a structured discussion between the apprentice and Independent Assessor. There will be probing questions and discussion about professional practice undertaken within the duration of the apprenticeship to determine the application of the knowledge, skills, and behaviors.

To read the full details of the EPA arrangements, please refer to the attached Awarding Body’s published plan that sets out the process.

  • Undertake the Disclosure and Barring Service process and provide the result.
  • It’s important that the role gives the opportunity to demonstrate management skills. We recommend that the potential apprentice have at least 6 months* experience of managing the services provided by the organisation in which they work.
