There are 4 modules which need to be completed.
End Point Assessment – how will assessment be undertaken?
Assessment Method 1: Practical Observation with Questions & Answers
The practical observation will be carried out over 2 hours (+/- 10%). The Q & A will last for 15 minutes (+/- 10%) and will take place at the end of each observation.
Assessment Method 2: Professional Discussion supported by portfolio of evidence
The practical observation will be carried out over 2 hours (+/- 10%). The Q & A will last for 15 minutes (+/- 10%) and will take place at the end of each observation. Whenever possible the practical observation should be undertaken by an independent assessor over a period of one day with each session lasting for at least 30 minutes, depending on the needs of the employer and practical observation opportunities.. These may also be undertaken on more than one day, to account for local difficulty in delivering the observations.
