    End Point Assessment

    The final, end point assessment is completed in the last few months of the apprenticeship. It is based on:

    • Portfolio of evidence – produced towards the end of the apprenticeship, containing evidence from real work projects which have been completed during the apprenticeship, usually towards the end, and which, taken together, cover the totality of the standard, and which is assessed as part of the end point assessment
    • Synoptic project - giving the apprentice the opportunity to undertake a business-related project over a one-week period away from the day to day workplace
    • Employer reference
    • Interview - exploring what has been produced in the portfolio and the project as well as looking at how it has been produced

    An independent assessor (from the BCS) will assess each element of the end point assessment and will then decide whether to award successful apprentices with a pass, a merit or a distinction.
