Our end-point assessment service

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

The apprentice will undertake the two end-point assessments:

  • A knowledge test
  • Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio 

A knowledge test - an onscreen test that will assess the apprentice’s knowledge and understanding across all areas of the Apprenticeship Standard, in line with the Assessment Plan requirements.

The test consists of 35 multiple-choice questions and the apprentices will have a maximum of 60 minute to complete the test.

GradingFail/Pass.

The apprentice must answer correctly a minimum of 23 questions out of 35 to achieve a pass. Of the 23 questions answered correctly, these must include all 5 questions relating to K15.

Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio - a planned structured discussion between the apprentice and the IEA, based on a review of the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence. Its purpose is to assess the apprentice’s understanding and their ability to apply the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours in carrying out their job role. It will allow the apprentice to evidence both the knowledge gained and its application through skills and behaviours.

The Professional discussion will last for a maximum of 90 minutes.
