End Point Assessment

We are an Ofqual recognised organisation that offers a professional and responsive EPA service across the engineering sector. From gateway to certification, our team of highly experiences assessors are available to support training providers, employers, and apprentices in their preparation for a positive and successful EPA experience.

Embracing all aspects of Apprenticeship Standards in our delivery of Apprenticeship programmes, The Engineering College recognises the role of End Point Assessment (EPA) in the apprenticeship journey and its significance in helping apprentices to achieve their programme. The End Point Assessment tests the apprentice’s knowledge, skills and behaviours or KSBs, grading each apprentice against criteria set out in the assessment plan.

Our assessment methods are developed from educational standards and assessment plans designed by trade specific industry trailblazer groups. Our assessment materials ensure apprentice knowledge, skills and behaviours are accurately measure to ensure competence within their chosen field.

For the benefit of a fair assessment, all apprentices subjected to an End Point Assessment are matched to an independent EPA that is skilled in the relevant assessment area, to complete the EPA process.
