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 apprenticeships standards.

There are three components that make up end-point assessment for the Healthcare Support Worker apprenticeship. Assessment will consist of:

  • a multiple choice and short answer questions test
  • an observation
  • an interview (supported by learning journal) 

Each component of end-point assessment is graded. Apprentices will also receive a grade for the overall end-point assessment. This will be Pass/Merit/Distinction.
