Learning and assessment
Apprentices will spend typically 18 months on-programme working towards the apprenticeship standard, with a minimum of 20% off-the-job training. In addition, they will need to complete a portfolio of evidence to support the professional discussion.
The end point assessment (EPA) must be completed within a 3 month period after the apprentice has met the EPA gateway requirements.
The EPA consists of two distinct assessment methods:
  • Practical observation with questions and answers
  • Professional discussion supported by a portfolio of evidence.
Performance in the EPA will determine the apprenticeship grade of distinction, pass or fail.
