How will I be assessed?
Every apprentice will be allocated a Coach to support ongoing learning and preparation for End Point Assessment (EPA). Progress Reviews will take place regularly to ensure the apprentice is on track.
The two EPA assessment methods are:
- Structured interview (supported by a portfolio of evidence summary)
- In-tray test
Both assessment methods will be conducted and graded by an independent EPAO.
What can I do next
After successfully competing the apprenticeship, you may want to take further courses to progress your career. This could include the Assistant Accountant Standard or AAT Level 3.
