At the end of the programme there is an End Point Assessment (EPA). This consists of three distinct assessment methods: • Multi-choice exam – to assess knowledge elements of the standard • Project report, presentation & questioning – to holistically assess knowledge, skills and behaviours in the standard • Professional discussion underpinned by Apprentice’s log (the on going ‘diary’ which records the activities throughout their learning journey) • It is also required that Apprentices have met the criteria for English and mathematics proficiency (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above). For candidates who do not currently have this qualification, an additional programme of learning support and testing will be required.
