Assessment methods

The EPA consists of two distinct assessment methods:

• Observation of leadership

• Professional discussion

Performance in the EPA will determine the apprenticeship grade of fail, pass or distinction.

Assessment method 1 – Observation of leadership

This assessment method will last a total of 90 minutes and is comprised of two stages.

The observation must take 60 minutes. The post-observation question session will take

30 minutes and will follow the observation. The independent assessor may increase the

total time of this assessment method by 10%, the additional 10% may be applied

across either stage.

2. Post-observation questioning

This post-observation questioning should take 30 minutes (+10% at the discretion of the

independent assessor to allow the apprentice to complete their last answer). This time

is in addition to the 60 minutes of direct observation.
