THE END POINT ASSESSMENT PROCESS

With ABET, the End Point Assessment (EPA) process is easy to follow and enables providers, employers and apprentices to be fully equipped throughout the journey.

Step 1: Getting Started

Training providers and employers ensure apprentices are signed up for the right apprenticeship programme and all parties understand their roles and responsibilities right from the beginning.

Step 2: Get familiarised with the Standards

With the help of assessment plan, every apprentice needs to understand what the programme entails.  Each Apprenticeship Standard and comes with its own Assessment Plan which outlines how it is assessed against the standard

Step 3: Evidence Gathering

Training provider will support the apprentices to gather required evidence through the course of the training. Apprentice will need to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and behaviours using a number of formats, including written or recorded statements and observations, reports, presentations, appraisals and feedback.

Step 4: EPA Ready

After gathering all the required evidence, the employer or and the training provider, will need to decide whether the apprentice is ready to proceed to the proper end point assessment. The readiness process may include conducting mock EPA for the apprentices.

Step 5: The EPA - Assessment

The End Point Assessment is the final milestone for apprentices. It examines their ability to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours through a range of assessment methods including professional discussion, multiple choice test, observation etc.

Step 6: Certification

Once the apprentice successfully gone through the EPA, a certificate is processed and this marks the end of the apprenticeship journey for the learner.
