End-point assessment services
An end-point assessment (EPA) is the assessment process for the new apprenticeship standards in England. The standard framework of an apprenticeship requires it to have training and assessment throughout the programme and they all must have an EPA. It is designed to assess whether an apprentice has met the requirements of the apprenticeship standards and is capable in their role.
The EPA must be conducted by a registered assessment organisation, from the government's Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations, who are independent from the apprentices training provider and employer. This ensures that those following the apprenticeship standards are assessed consistently. The apprenticeship assessment organisation for the EPA is chosen by the Employer, who might make their decision based on a number of factors, such as the company’s reputation or track history.

How is the EPA plan set?
The EPA plan is decided by employer groups, known as trailblazers, when the new standards are created. Each standard has its own assessment plan. Assessment methods include: skills observation, professional discussions, portfolios of work, projects and online multiple choice tests.
