End-point assessments

Newcross Healthcare is an end-point assessment (EPA) organisation for apprenticeships in the UK. Additionally, we are the first and only healthcare employer provider approved by the ESFA as an end-point assessor.

What is an end-point assessment?

When an apprentice completes their training, their employer will decide whether they’re ready to take an end-point assessment. This is a holistic assessment of the knowledge, skills and behaviours throughout their apprenticeship programme. Without passing their end-point assessment, an apprentice can’t complete and achieve their apprenticeship.   

Registered assessment organisations, like Newcross, are the only bodies who deliver end-point assessments to maintain impartiality. These EPA organisations are approved on the ESFA register of apprenticeship assessment organisations. In addition, 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?

Since Newcross is an end-point assessor, this means that we are occupationally competent to sign-off any learners on levels 2 through 5 in health and social care. This is completed through professional discussions and situational judgement tests, plus quality assurance and auditing. We can do this for those who have completed their apprenticeship with any UK based learning provider who delivers these health and social care qualifications. 

Newcross has provided this service in over 1000 different healthcare settings. Currently, we have almost 2000 live apprentices awaiting our end-point assessment at the end of their apprenticeships. 


In addition to being an end-point assessor, did you know that we also offer a wide range of fully funded apprenticeships in health and social care? With options that can help you to develop and grow your career, as well as opportunities for those who want to start a career in care, there’s plenty of ways to reach your potential.
