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 ESFA-approved Assessment Organisation, we provide a full range of assessment services to support the diverse requirements of the apprenticeships standards.

*EPA specification is in development, due for publishing in January 2022.

There are two components for this EPA

1.    Professional Discussion underpinned by Portfolio

The professional discussion will be appropriately structured to draw out the best of the apprentice’s competence and excellence and covers the knowledge, skills and behaviours assigned to this assessment method. The apprentice will be able to refer to and illustrate their professional discussion responses with evidence from their portfolio of evidence.

2.    Project Report and Questioning

The apprentice will conduct a project and complete a project report that is designed to ensure that their work meets the needs of the business, is relevant to their role and allows for the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours assigned to this assessment method to be demonstrated. Questioning will focus on coverage of the project report and activities, allowing for deeper exploration of occupational competence and further opportunities for apprentices to draw out key aspects of their work.
