End Point Assessment
What is an end point assessment?
End point assessment (EPA) allows apprentices to demonstrate the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to complete and achieve their apprenticeships.
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 requisite gateway criteria.
Assessment is carried out by approved awarding organisations to ensure assessments are consistent and comparable. EUIAS publishes end-point assessment specifications and supporting resources for all the standards listed below.
An apprenticeship certificate is only awarded after an EPA is successfully completed.
The EUIAS provides EPA for 16 sector-based standards.
