Who is this course for?
This is a condensed online learning course designed for qualified assessors who are planning to deliver (or already conducting) end-point assessment, or those preparing apprentices for it.
This condensed course is for qualified assessors – you must therefore already hold a recognised assessor qualification such as CAVA or A1. Course participants must be aged 18 or over and be proficient in Literacy and Numeracy. You should also have proven occupational experience in the sector area that you plan to conduct end-point assessment in. A copy of your CV and a professional statement, qualification certificates and proof of ID will be required.
In order to participate in the course, you will require:
- a good internet connection
- a set of headphones, in-earphones or a mic-phones headset to eliminate background noise, you need to be able to speak as well as listen to participate in the sessions
- a webcam, to allow us to both verify your identity and to allow the assessor to observe your activity and contribution (N.B this is a mandatory requirement of Highfield the awarding body to allow us to move the assessed component of the award online)
This qualification is accredited by Highfield Qualifications, with whom SDN is an approved centre. If you successfully complete the course, you will receive a Level 3 Award in Undertaking End-Point Assessment
The course will be taught by Chris Cherry and Carole Loader, SDN experts in apprenticeship on-programme training and end-point assessment. Our team have been heavily involved in the development of new standards and assessment plans, as well as supporting many EPAOs and hundreds of individuals to prepare to deliver end-point assessment.
