End Point Assessment
Overview of assessment
The end point assessment covers all of the skills, knowledge and behaviours in the Standard. It will take place using independent assessors appointed by QFI and the methods shown below:
This will consist of a practical assessment, completed in in a real work environment which provides apprentices with the opportunity to demonstrate the core and specific knowledge, skills and behaviours they have learnt through their apprenticeship. The duration of the practical assessment will be approximately 4 hours and may be carried out on a live demolition site or in a training centre. During the practical test, the assessor will ask you a series of 10 open questions, of which 5 will be safety-critical questions.
This will take the form of a structured interview between the apprentice and the assessor and will take approximately 1.5 hours. It will consist of a series of 18 open questions, with follow up questions if required. It will be used to assess the apprentice on skills not covered by the practical assessment and is informed by the apprentices’ portfolio of evidence. The apprentice can use their portfolio during the discussion to support their answers.
