End-Point Assessment services and resources to support the learner prepare
Before end-point assessment, the Level 2 English and Maths components of the apprenticeship must be successfully achieved.
Apprentices are assessed by an end-point assessor, appointed by YMCA Awards.
We only work with experienced assessors who have current occupational expertise and knowledge of the area they are assessing.
The EPA is made up of three distinct assessment methods, in this running order:
1. Practical observation with questions and answers
3 hour observation followed by 20 minutes of questions, conducted in-person by the independent assessor at the employer’s site
2. Presentation with questions and answers:
15-minute formal presentation with 15 minutes of questions, conducted in-person at the employer’s site, or using video call technology
90-minute competency-based interview, conducted in-person at the employer’s site, or using video call technology.
Grading is made up of three categories: Pass, Distinction and Fail. Each assessment is graded individually and then combined to determine the EPA grade.
