    What is End-Point Assessment?

    End-point assessment (EPA) is the final stage of an apprenticeship. It is an impartial assessment of whether the apprentice has developed the skills, knowledge and behaviours outlined in the apprenticeship standard.  Assessments are designed by employers in the sector and are conducted by independent bodies known as end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs). CIM is an Ofqual-recognised and Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) approved EPAO.
