At the end of the apprenticeship, the apprentice will go through a Gateway process. This is where they will be signed-off by their employer as Ready for a final assessment. An employer will decide if the apprentice is ready to be assessed on their Knowledge and practical capabilities.
The Final assessment for the apprentice is to ensure that they can do the job that they have been training for and will demonstrate that what they have been learning can be applied in the work place.
The End Point Assessment will be undertaken via a range of techniques – from Professional Discussions, Examinations,Situational Judgement Tests and Written Project Work.
