Our End-point Assessment service

You can use Pearson as your end-point assessment organisation regardless of whether you choose to use our on-programme offer or not.

As an SFA-approved Assessment Organisation we provide a full range of assessment services to support the diverse requirements of the new apprenticeships standards.

There are five components that make up end-point assessment for the Operations/Departmental Manager apprenticeship standard.

End-point assessment will consist of a: 

  • multiple choice knowledge test using scenarios and questions
  • structured competency based interview
  • portfolio of evidence
  • work based project assessment including presentation and Q&A
  • professional Discussion relating to Continuing Professional Development.

The final assessment and grading will be undertaken by an Independent Assessor. Marks will be allocated across all five assessment components being assessed, with a total maximum possible mark of 100.

Apprentices will need to achieve at least 50 per cent within each component of the end-point assessment to be able to pass the apprenticeship. A merit and distinction will be awarded for total marks of 60+ and 70+ respectively.
