EPA Assessor Course Description
Award in End-Point Assessment Principles and Practice
An End-Point Assessment is the final part of an Apprenticeship, assessed by an Independent End-Point Assessor. The purpose of this is to come to a decision on the competency levels of the Apprentice. Almost every End-Point Assessment out there requires the IEPA to hold a recognised assessor qualification, such as the CAVA, A1, or D32/33. A standard, recognised assessor qualification qualifies you to become an End-Point Assessor. There is not an accredited End-Point Assessor qualification that, alone, qualifies you to become an IEPA.
With that being said, non of the recognised assessor qualifications teach you how to End-Point Assess. This is due to the fact that End-Point Assessment is a newer feature to the assessing world, than the assessing qualifications. That’s why we at Brooks and Kirk designed and developed our very own exclusive End-Point Assessor training course.
The purpose of this course is to provide trainee and/or qualified assessors with a clear understanding of how the principles and practices of assessment in EPA, differ to ‘traditional’ vocational assessment. If you aren’t already a qualified assessor, then you will need our End-Point Assessor Course Bundle.
