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:
Consisting of 50 multiple-choice knowledge-based questions of which 10 will be short scenario-based questions. The knowledge test will be closed book i.e. the apprentice cannot refer to reference books or materials and is taken in the presence of an invigilator. The test may be Electronic or paper-based. Apprentices have 90 minutes in which to complete the test.
Apprentices will be observed by an assessor completing 2practical tasks: the tiling of a wall area and tiling of a floor area. During or after completion of the tasks, the assessor will ask a minimum of 6 set open questions to assess related underpinning knowledge. Observations are carried out over an assessment period of 12 hours over 2 days. Apprentices will be provided with both written and verbal instructions on the tasks they must complete including timescales.
This takes place on a 1:1 basis with the apprentice and assessor and consists of a minimum of 15 questions that refer to evidence in the apprentice’s portfolio of completed work. Professional discussion will take place over 45 minutes and the apprentice will be able to refer to their portfolio during the discussion.
