The approaches needed for assessment, by apprentices, to complete their apprenticeship programme are very different through the End Point Assessment (EPA) requirements. The role of the ‘assessor’ needs a very different approach to support learner development. Continuous checking of the learner’s competency across the full range of knowledge, skills and behaviours considered essential for their apprenticeship standard is core to apprentice success. Assessors therefore need to take more of a trainer role to ensure that the apprentices are fully prepared for EPA and possess all the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours at the required level of competence.
This webinar will look at the core components of EPA, needing to be taken into account when supporting learner skill development, throughout their programme; and the different approaches that will be needed to support learners in achieving successful EPA outcomes.
Content will cover what EPA means in terms of final assessment and how the information can be used to inform the required apprentice development; the different approaches and skills that will be needed when supporting learners on programme; and how to check when learners are ready for EPA.
