Our end-point assessment service
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 Changes
As of 1st January 2021 all apprentices will be assessed under the new specification and assessment requirements, following changes agreed by NASR, the EQA body. This specifies achievement of 100% of criteria in the practical task to achieve at each grade (pass or distinction) and includes a new list of evidence requirements for distinction performance in the practical task.
Any apprentices taking their assessment prior to 31st December 2020 should remain on the previous version of the specification:
What is being assessed?
The end-point assessment for the Supply Chain Warehouse Operative Level 2 apprenticeship standard consists of the following two assessment components:
- knowledge test comprising short answer questions based on scenarios encountered in the workplace
- practical test consisting of activities observed by the assessor relating to the skills requirements in the apprenticeship standard.
The overall apprenticeship is graded as Pass/Distinction, based on the apprentice’s combined achievement of the specified grading criteria across the two assessment components.
Overall EPA is graded as Pass/ Distinction, and the two assessment components are separately graded too.
