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:

Assessment of Project

The project will be a practical work-based assignment, completed during the last 6months of the apprenticeship, following the gateway process. It provides the opportunity to demonstrate integration of skills, knowledge, and behaviours that will be assessed through the final assessment process. A final interview panel, consisting of the line manager, training provider and an assessor appointed by QFI, will review the completed project as preparation for the interview/viva and prepare the structure of the interview.

Interview/Viva

The interview/viva will commence with a 5-10minute presentation by the apprentice based on their project followed by a series of questions from the assessment panel. This will take approximately 45 minutes. The focus of the final assessmentis on the apprentice demonstrating competence against the defined assessment criteria. The interview panel will review the evidence and allocate a grade accordingly. The interview/viva will be conducted either face-to-face or via video conferencing and will take approximately 1 hour.

Readiness for assessment

The employer will endorse progression to the end-point when satisfied that the apprentice is consistently working at or above the level set out in the standard, and the pre-requisite gateway requirements have been met with evidence to support these:

  • achieved minimum level 2 English and mathematics
  • completed an agreed regulated qualification (recommended)/ or an assessment of knowledge
  • developed a portfolio of evidence through a formative assessment process
  • Work based project (mandatory as assessed at end point).
