Our corporate member ILM have produced a useful briefing on use of portfolios in end point assessment.
For many universities, training providers and employers the new apprenticeship standards now being successfully delivered across England have presented some exciting opportunities. Apprenticeship providers have also identified the need to review traditional apprenticeship delivery models to meet the expectations of new standards.
Approved EPAOs are now externally endorsing apprentice achievements via appointed independent end-point assessors using a range of summative assessment methods. Depending on the apprenticeship standard and the EPA assessment plan, these methods can include observation of practice, knowledge testing, professional discussion/panel interview, and workplace evidence collated though portfolios or work based projects.
This briefing aims to highlight some key considerations to employers, apprentices and those delivering new apprenticeship standards in higher education (HE) where a portfolio of evidence is required as part of the apprentices EPA.
