End-point assessment - Navigate your apprenticeship journey

In February 2019, Community First Academy Trust was accepted onto the register of End-Point Assessment Organisations. 

We’re at the cutting edge when it comes to apprenticeships, from advice and expertise to our end-point assessment (EPA) solutions.

Community First Academy Trust's EPA service is independent to our provision of apprenticeship training. To ensure consistency and impartiality the EPA cannot be carried out by the training provider delivering the apprenticeship.

Employers have the option to secure our services to conduct the end point assessment of an apprentice (not trained by Kinsgbridge SCITT) once they have achieved QTS during the fourth term of their apprenticeship.

Before going forward for the end-point assessment, the apprentice must have:

Meet the minimum entry criteria for an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course see - Route 3 - Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeships for more details

 

 

  • Successfully completed an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course delivered by a provider accredited by the National College for Teaching and Leadership; and
  • been recommended for Qualified Teacher Status awarded by an accredited ITE provider. The apprentice must have also completed a portfolio of evidence compiled over the duration of the ITT.

Please note that the End Point assessment will take place at the employing school.

The panel will be made up of the end point assessor (who will have been separate from the training process), a representative from the employer and a representative from the ITT provider.

The assessment has two components: a lesson observation and a professional discussion that will be broken down during the EPA as follows:

  • Review of the Assessment methods during the ITT programme, leading to the recommendation for QTS
  • Lesson Observation
  • Discussion Based Interview Panel

During the lesson observation and discussion, notes will be taken by the end point assessor. These notes may be shared with the members of the Panel. Notes will be taken by the end point assessor, the employer and the ITT provider during the Discussion Based Interview.

The end point assessor will complete a full written report following the visit to the employing school or educational setting.

The final decision of the apprentice’s grade will be that of the independent end point assessor.
