How is this Apprenticeship Assessed?

All Trailblazer apprenticeships are required to have an end-point assessment (EPA) that is carried out by an independent body. Apprentices must pass the end-point assessment in order to achieve the apprenticeship certificate. The end-point assessment for the Operational/Departmental Manager Apprenticeship involves a review of the Apprentice’s portfolio of evidence which is collated during their work/study time; an externally set knowledge test; presentation of a work-based project and question/answer session and an interview/competency-based discussion relating to the Apprentice’s Continual Professional Development Log. At EPA learners will also be assessed against the criteria for the Chartered Manager Professional Registration status.
