What is End Point Assessment (EPA)?

Updated: Nov 11, 2022

End-point assessment (EPA) is the final stage of an apprenticeship. It is an impartial assessment of whether your apprentice has developed the skills, knowledge and behaviours outlined in the apprenticeship standard.

Assessments are designed by employers in the sector and are conducted by independent bodies known as end-point assessment organisations.

As well as successfully completing the EPA, the apprentice may need to complete several additional requirements before completion. This might include mandatory English and maths qualifications.

EPAs are often conducted remotely, and this can be supportive of apprentices as this can mean that they can conduct their EPA from home, work or their training provider/college. Face to face EPAs mean that an independent end point assessor will come to your place of work to assess the key skills, knowledge and behaviours, giving apprentices the opportunity to showcase their skills in the workplace.

Once all elements of the apprenticeship are completed, the apprentice will receive their apprenticeship certificate.
