There are three components for this EPA

Practical Demonstration

Apprentices will be observed directly by an independent assessor completing a practical demonstration in a simulated environment consisting of 3 separate tasks in which they will demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours assigned to this method. The tasks are defined as:

  • Correct identification of telecoms cables
  • Installation of a new telecoms component
  • Fault-finding on the telecoms network

Professional Discussion

The professional discussion will be appropriately structured to draw out the best of the apprentice’s competence and excellence and cover the knowledge, skills and behaviours assigned to this assessment method. It will involve questions that will focus on analysis of given scenarios, coverage of prior learning or activity and problem solving. Apprentices can refer to and illustrate their answers with evidence from a portfolio of evidence, however the portfolio is not directly assessed.

Knowledge Test

The knowledge test will consist of 30 questions hosted on the Pearson Onscreen Platform. It will consist of multiple-choice questions and be based upon the knowledge, skills and behaviours mapped to this method.
