Newcross Healthcare is an end-point assessment (EPA) organisation for apprenticeships in the UK, and the very first and only healthcare employer provider to be approved by ESFA as an end-point assessor.
What is an End-Point Assessment?
When an apprentice nears the end of their training, their employer will decide whether or not they’re ready to take an end-point assessment - a holistic assessment of the knowledge, skills and behaviours outlined and learned throughout their apprenticeship programme.
Without passing their end-point assessment, an apprentice can’t complete and achieve their apprenticeship, and this can only be delivered by a registered assessment organisation, such as Newcross, in order to maintain impartiality. The EPA organisation must be approved on the ESFA register of apprenticeship assessment organisations, and the end-point assessment is separate to any other qualifications or assessments an apprentice may undertake during their training
What is an End-Point Assessor?
Being an end-point assessor means that we are occupationally competent to sign-off any learners on levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in health and social care through professional discussions and situational judgement tests, plus quality assurance and auditing. We are able to do this for those who have completed their apprenticeship with any UK based learning provider who delivers these health and social care qualifications.
We are delighted to have provided this service in over 1000 different healthcare settings and currently have almost 2000 live apprentices awaiting our end-point assessment at the end of their apprenticeships.
