End Point Assessment Guides

End-point assessment (EPA) tests the knowledge, skills and behaviours that an apprentice has gained during their training. Unique to each standard and subject area, EPA demonstrates the competence of an apprentice in their role. This competence is valued by current and future employers.

At the end of an apprenticeship, the apprentice will go through a ‘gateway’ process where they are signed-off as ready for a final assessment of their knowledge and practical capabilities. The assessment will be graded (in most cases) and the Independent Assessment Organisation (IAO) and assessor must be independent of, and separate from, the training provided by the provider and employer.

You can find EPA plans on the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education’s (the Institute) website. Only approved EPAOs can carry out assessments as set out in the assessment plan.
