Level 3 Award in Undertaking End Point Assessment

Who is this programme for?

This qualification is for people who are working or wish to work for End Point Assessment Organisations (EPAOs) and would be involved in assessing Apprentices.

Studying for the qualification will provide specific knowledge and skills for those who plan to undertake end-point assessments. It is designed to support those who have sector competence within specific areas of approved apprenticeship standards and who would like to gain a more specialised understanding of end-point assessments processes and practices.

Unlike other providers of this qualification, you do not need to be already qualified as an assessor to join the programme, which is suitable for all those who are intending to work as End-Point Assessors, whether already qualified as an assessor or not.

This qualification has been designed to cover assessment methods that are used in many of the assessment plans for currently approved apprenticeship standards.

What are the programme objectives?

The aim of this unit is to enable the learner to understand and use end-point assessment principles and practices to undertake end-point assessments, to assess an apprentice against an apprenticeship standard.

By undertaking this period of study, learners will understand the different types of end-point assessment and the role of the end-point assessor. They will demonstrate assessment skills by making, recording and justifying assessment decisions against apprenticeship standards.
