Apprenticeship Standards Become an Independent End-point Assessor
Are you a passionate, motivated individual with recent occupational experience and interested in assessing apprentices against an industry standard? If so, ever thought about becoming an Independent End-point Assessor (IEA)?
Overview of the IEA role
The government has introduced a requirement that all apprenticeships contain an end-point assessment (EPA). This is a holistic assessment of the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviour (KSBs) that have been learnt throughout the apprenticeship. Your role as an IEA would involve assessing apprentices, following the same pre-set standard, regardless of where they are undertaking their apprenticeship or who they are doing it with.
To maintain independence within the scope of an EPA means you can only undertake end-point assessments of apprentices, with whom you have no conflict of interest nor have anything to gain from the outcome of the assessment.
Support and training
We offer excellent training, through a modular induction, and continued support, through our internal quality assurance and performance management process. This will help to ensure that you keep up-to-date on all current requirements and procedures, as well as offering a flexible way of working that works for you.
Our training and standardisation sessions are delivered through a variety of ways - webinars, briefings and updates and along with that, all relevant support materials will be provided for you, to give you everything you need to be able to engage with employers and apprentices alike.
We’re currently recruiting for suitable, qualified people to become independent end-point assessors across a number of industry sectors, and further opportunities will be added, on an ongoing basis.
