Important information

The updated Assessment Plan for Senior Healthcare Support Worker (SHCSW) was approved and published by the Institute for Apprenticeships on 5th September 2018. Any learners registered after 5th September 2018 will be required to undertake EPA with this assessment plan. 

Pearson's current EPA offer and the associated products for the Senior Healthcare Support Worker standard and Assessment plan on this page are related to the legacy assessment plan for learners registered on Apprenticeships prior to 5th September 2018. 

We will be producing new specification and associated products for the new assessment plan in due course.

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 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.
