This end-point assessment ensures apprentices achieve the skills, training and any qualifications necessary to complete their apprenticeship.

You can download the assessment plan from the Institute for Apprenticeships. There are no end-point assessment organisations for this apprenticeship yet. Please email apprentice.assessment@education.gov.uk if you urgently need an end-point assessment organisation.
