Therefore we are currently recruiting for a number of positions to undertake this work.
The role of IEPA has been designed to provide an impartial, final assessment of the candidate’s skills and behaviours. As the IEPA, you will be responsible for delivering the End-point Assessment, making judgements about the standards they have achieved, logging assessment for audit, and overall ensuring the quality assurance and decisions made against the assessment outcomes are just.
These assessments may be face to face, or for some standards, delivered remotely via webinar.
In order to carry out this role affectively we need you to have up-to-date, relevant, and broad experience of working in the Hospitality, culinary industry, and have a current knowledge of working practices which reflect the whole standards content
You must also have current, relevant occupational expertise and knowledge, working/have worked as a Chef de Partie or achieved a relevant level 3, which is gained through “hands on” experience in industry.
In addition must hold a recognised current workplace assessment qualification, for example D32, D33, A1 or Level 3 TAQA-Qualified to a minimum Level 3, and must be able to evidence relevant and up-to-date CPD, which is related directly to the standard and industry, not just general.
