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: 
Professional Discussion 
*The PMQ is a mandatory element of the overall apprenticeship and must be passed prior to EPA. As part of your PMQ you will also be required to sit a 3 hour written exam.

APM Project Management Qualification Cost 

If you choose to study through an apprenticeship, your employer can access up to 95% of the course cost, or pay in full via their apprenticeship levy. This means that students can achieve the prestigious APM PMQ without any cost to them as an individual. 
If your employer has a payroll of over £3m per year, they can pay for your course in full using their apprenticeship levy. If they have a payroll of less than £3m per year, they can access government funding for 95% of the course cost. The remaining employer cost to pay per learner is £300.
