Apprenticeship End-Point Assessment
 
Lead Adult Care Worker and Adult Care Worker Standard End-Point Assessment Delivery Model
 
Staffing
 
All staff delivering the end-point assessment for this standard will have relevant, recent experience of Health and Social Care which demonstrates industry competence. They will have a thorough knowledge of the occupation.
 
They will be required to have an assessor qualification (Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment, Level 2 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement, A1 or D32/D33).
 
Other requirements
 
End-point assessors are also required to have good IT skills and the ability to work with online reporting forms. Good organisation, communication and planning skills are also required.
 
Our end-point assessors are responsible for maintaining their own Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to ensure competency is up-to-date, in line with qualification requirements.
 
We currently have 6 members of staff qualified to deliver end-point assessments and do not intend to outsource any of this provision. This delivery team are based throughout London and the South East, ensuring that our coverage area for end-point assessment is as wide as possible. All end-point assessment delivery will take place at the employer's premises in line with our current delivery model for Apprenticeships and Functional Skills. Our staff are equipped with laptops, internet dongles and Smart phones ensuring that learners have access to testing software, resources and electronic learning platforms as required.
 
Certification
 
We have worked with the awarding body Pearson Education for many years and have a robust certification process in place. We are also experienced in claiming Framework certificates from ACE. There will initially be a stringent check that learners coming to us for end-point assessment have achieved the standard requirements of The Care Certificate, the Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care, Level 1 in numeracy and literacy and have undertaken a self-assessment in the last month of their Apprenticeship to ensure they are competent in all aspects of their job role and are assessment ready. Prior to the professional discussion, the witness testimonies from service users will be checked by the assessor to ensure they are relevant and show knowledge and understanding by the candidate.
 
Once the graded result of the multiple choice 60 questions assessment is known, and the graded professional discussion has taken place, the learner will be awarded a final grade and a certificate presented to the Apprentice. It is not clear from the Assessment strategy at this stage if the Apprenticeship is certificated externally or in house but we have adequate administrative resources to enable either.
 
Engagement with Employers & Training Providers
 
Employers and Training Providers will be able to engage with out end-point assessment services by finding us on the Register for end-point assessment. Our Business Development Team will initially deal with any enquires regarding assessment and then field the enquiry to the relevant assessor dependent on the area. The cost of the end-point assessment will be agreed with the employer or training provider before delivery starts and a contract will be signed by both parties to determine roles and responsibilities.
