END POINT ASSESSMENT (EPA)
End Point Assessments are a collection of assessments that offer confirmation of knowledge, skills and behaviours – known as KSBs – for the apprentice. The apprentice enters into EPA once their training is completed and they have passed all relevant exams and obtained a portfolio of evidence to show they are competent in the workplace. They cannot achieve their apprenticeship until they have passed EPA.
EPA is made up of 4 elements:
- Synoptic project: A business-related project carried out over a one week period
- Summative portfolio: Produced at the end of the apprenticeship, including evidence they have gathered from real workplace projects completed during their apprenticeship
- Employer reference: A written reference from the employer based on the apprentice's attitude, skills and performance
- Structured interview: Conducted by an assessor, reviewing what has been produced in the portfolio and project, and how it was produced. The assessor will question the apprentice about any gaps in their portfolio in order to ensure they have a well-rounded understanding of the industry.

Off The Job Training
Apprenticeships must last a minimum of 12 months and involve at least 20% off the job training. This 20% off-the-job training requirement is measured over the course of an apprenticeship.
