Overview of the independent end-point assessor role:
Government has introduced a requirement that all apprenticeships contain an end-point assessment (EPA) which is a holistic assessment of the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviour (KSBs) that have been learnt throughout the apprenticeship. This is to make sure that apprentices meet the rigorous standard set by employers and are fully competent in the relevant occupation. (COMPANY NAME) must provide employers with the confidence that completing an apprenticeship means an individual is fully job-ready and that all apprentices, following the same standard, are assessed consistently, regardless of where they are undertaking their apprenticeship or who they are doing it with.
An independent EPA means that those making a decision on the competency of the apprentice have nothing to gain from the outcome of the assessment. To maintain independence within the scope of this EPA, an independent end-point assessor can only undertake end-point assessments of apprentices, with whom they have no conflict of interest. This means they must not have been involved in the on-programme training, assessment, or line management of such apprentices.
The end-point assessments will be conducted onsite, on dates agreed with employers and/or providers if appropriate. Independent end-point assessors (IEAs) will record and submit the EPA outcomes, with clear justifications for the grading decisions. EPA activities will be quality assured by (COMPANY NAME) quality assurance representatives.
IEAs will be trained, standardised and approved to operate as IEAs. The IEAs will undertake EPAs in line with the associated apprenticeship assessment plan, and the materials provided by (COMPANY NAME).
Key Accountabilities:
The IEA will:
· Take part in regular training and standardisation activities, associated with the role of IEA for this EPA

· Maintain service-level agreements with regards to responding to EPA planning, operational activities, reports and submissions of assessment outcomes
· Report all risks and issues encountered during the end-point assessment to (COMPANY NAME), including any suspected malpractice/maladministration
· Ensure all EPA reports and assessment evidence are high quality and recorded accurately
· Support (COMPANY NAME), if necessary, with any appeals from apprentices, regarding assessment decisions
· Raise any conflicts of interest, including in relation to the independence of assessment
· Ensure that any personal actions are completed, as required by (COMPANY NAME)
