End-point assessment – What is this? 

End-point assessment is a new way of assuring quality in the apprenticeship system. It replaces the existing model of continuous assessment resulting in qualifications. 
Once an apprentice has completed their apprenticeship, they will be ‘signed off’ by their employer/ provider as ready for end-point assessment of their knowledge and practical capabilities. In most cases, the assessment will be graded and must show the apprentice is fully competent and productive in the occupation. 
End Point Assessment consists of: 
Portfolio of evidence 
Case for support pitch presentation with questions and answers 
Professional Discussion
