We are Ofqual-regulated End Point Assessors for each of the following standards:
The EPA / Training Provider link is crucial to success for the learning outcomes for the apprentices, for the employers and for the Training Provider.
We will partner with you for the journey, supplying all the materials your apprentices will need for success at the end point assessment. We will support you for mini tests to use throughout your training, mock exams as your apprentices get close to their End Point Assessment and guidance on preparing for the presentation and questioning elements of the assessment (all materials appropriate to the assessment level) to include typical questions for project reviews.
For End Point Assessment we provide you with our assessment handbook that explains in detail how each element of the apprentice’s work is assessed. You also receive a set of practice questions that are similar in style and difficulty to the actual EPA examinations. We help you to structure your DMAIC gateway reviews so that your apprentices are properly prepared for the professional discussion.
Our objective here is that you do not put forward an apprentice for end point assessment until we are jointly sure that they will complete successfully – this makes the process smooth and effective for all parties.
As an additional service to Training Providers, we will review your training materials and point out areas where they do not meet the requirements of published Standards – the support that a Senior Master Black Belt can give here is invaluable.
When your apprentices are ready for their end point assessment, we will manage the process professionally and provide feedback both to the apprentice and the trainers. All assessors are qualified to at least one level higher than the Standard that they are assessing; for Level 4 and 5 these will be Master Black Belt level which Level 6 candidates are assessed by the Partners.
We offer competitive rates for all four Standards and would be pleased to discuss your requirements and our offer.
Our standard rates for End Point Assessments are:
ST0193: £ 700
ST0192: £ 950
The actual fees charged will depend on a number of factors including assessment volumes. We would be pleased to discuss details for individual cases.
We provide valuable help on what is needed to prepare properly for your End Point Assessment (EPA). This information is based on what is publicly available in the Assessment Plans and helps you to understand the design and intent of the various EPAs, so that you can prepare efficiently and avoid common mistakes.
