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 three components that make up end-point assessment for the Business Administrator apprenticeship standard.

End-point assessment will consist of a:

  • Knowledge Test: a multiple choice test comprising of 50 equally weighted questions with four possible answers each. 
  • Portfolio based interview: The apprentice is interviewed by the independent assessor with a portfolio of learning providing the structure for the interview. 
  • Project presentation: A presentation including Q&A delivered by the apprentice to the independent assessor on a project they have completed or a process they have improved. 

Apprentices must achieve at least 60% within each component of the end-point assessment to pass the apprenticeship. A merit and distinction will be awarded for total marks of 60-79% and 80% and over respectively.
