What is an end-point assessment and why it happens
An EPA is an assessment at the end of your apprenticeship. It will assess you against the knowledge, skills, and behaviours (KSBs) in the occupational standard. Your training will cover the KSBs. The EPA is your opportunity to show an independent assessor how well you can carry out the occupation you have been trained for.
Your employer will choose an end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) to deliver the EPA. Your employer and training provider should tell you what to expect and how to prepare for your EPA. The length of the training for this apprenticeship is typically 15 months. The EPA period is typically 3 months.

We ask learners to attend 1x 2hr lecture per month, these are set in advance and will always be during working hours (09:00 – 17:00). In addition to this, learners are required to evidence 5hrs of their work activities per week, which relate to their course standards. This is logged in their portfolio as ‘OTJ Hours’ and will be assessed by their tutors. For example, if a learner is enrolled on the Digital Marketing qualification, and they spend 3hrs a week managing a social media campaign through your companies Instagram account, this would make up 3 of the 5 OTJ hours they are required to log each week.
For non-levy paying businesses, the government pay for 95% of the course fees, and the employer makes a 5% co-payment. For Levy paying businesses, the allocation comes straight out of the companies levy account.
