Summary of the role
Following the apprenticeship qualification reforms, all apprenticeship standards are now assessed mainly by End-point Assessment, once candidates have completed certain elements of their training with the training provider.
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 specific industry area, including current knowledge of working practices, legislation and policy within organisations and industry.
You need to be occupationally competent in this field of practice, which means you must be able to assess the whole breadth of the apprenticeship standard, not just individual elements or components.
It is imperative that you are a registered healthcare professional or have completed at least a level 3 apprenticeship or regulated occupational competence qualification at level 3 or above. Alongside having experience of working in a health or social care setting in the last 2 years and hold, or be working towards, a formal assessor qualification.
