End-Point Assessment for apprentices

End-Point Assessment is the assessment that you as the apprentice undertake to confirm that you have learnt the knowledge, skills and behaviours outlined in the apprenticeship. These are often referred to as KSBs.

  • Knowledge - refers to the technical detail and the "know-how" needed for you to carry out your work.
  • Skills - refers to how you apply that knowledge. You'll learn skills through experience and on the job training.
  • Behaviours - refers to your mindset - are you able to display behaviours when applying what you've learnt, such as adapting to change, working as part of a team, or problem solving?

Assessments have been designed by employers in the sector - and are conducted by independent bodies known as End-Point Assessment Organisations. We are an End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for the Junior Estate Agent Apprenticeship. This means that we offer assessment of the application of the knowledge, skills and behaviours that you've learned throughout your apprenticeship. You are assessed at the end of your apprenticeship, when you're ready. You have up to five years to complete your apprenticeship. Depending on the level of your apprenticeship, you have up to five years to complete it. Typically, a Level 2 would take around 12 months, and a Level 3 18 months to complete.

End-Point Assessment for Employers

End-Point Assessment is the assessment the apprentice undertakes to confirm that they have learnt everything that they need to, and can pass the apprenticeship. Assessments have been designed by employers in the sector - and are conducted by independent bodies known as End-Point Organisations. We are an End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for the Junior Estate Agent Apprenticeship. EPAOs should be selected as soon as possible at the beginning of the apprenticeship process.

Your apprentice should be working towards the criteria set out by the Junior Estate Agent apprenticeship standard. With their newfound knowledge and skill, they need to be assessed to determine that they have learned enough to pass their apprenticeship. By registering with us as the End-Point Assessment Organiser, you will be ensuring your apprentice will be tested thoroughly and fairly.

If your Junior Estate Agent apprentice is ready for their End-Point Assessment (EPA), then register with Propertymark Qualifications to book their assessment. We'll provide the venue and an Independent Assessor to test your apprentice and complete their apprenticeship. 

If the employer and apprentice agree that the apprentice now has the sufficient knowledge, skills and understanding to take their EPA, and the apprentice has completed the criteria for the Gateway stage, then you can register for their EPA today. 

Register for the EPA

Our Independent Assessors are experienced and qualified individuals who have no involvement in the apprentice's training. The questions and scenarios presented to your apprentice at the assessment will be accurate and realistic, ensuring all their knowledge and skills are tested. The apprenticeship cannot end without the EPA; this will be your apprentice's chance to apply all that they have learned.

CONTACT US

Your apprentice will get their apprenticeship certificate once they've passed all the elements in their End-Point Assessment (including any required standards in English and Maths).

For further information about the Junior Estate Agent End Point Assessment, please contact EPA@propertymark.co.uk or call 01926 417 794.

Equally, if you feel you have the industry expertise and assessment experience to become an Independent Assessor, then email us at examiners@propertymark.co.uk.
