End-point assessment for apprentices
End-point assessment allows an apprentice to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours, as defined in the published apprenticeship standard, so that they can complete and achieve their apprenticeship.
It is taken by apprentices at the very end of the on-programme phase of training when their employer (and in some cases their training provider) is satisfied that they have met the “gateway” criteria to undertake the assessment.
An independent organisation must be selected by an employer to carry out the end-point assessment of each apprentice, to ensure apprentices are assessed consistently and comparably. End-point assessment is graded as defined in the published assessment plan. An apprenticeship certificate is only awarded after end-point assessment is successfully completed.
The Register of End-point Assessment Organisations
The Register of End-point Assessment Organisations is a list of organisations that have been approved to carry out independent end-point assessment of apprentices and be in receipt of public funds. Only organisations on the Register can be selected to undertake the end-point assessment of apprentices for a specific standard. The Register is maintained by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and employers can choose which end-point assessment organisation to use from this list.
