End Point Assessment
Yorkshire and Humber Teacher Training is an 'End Point Assessment Organisation' (EPAO) for the Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship (ST0490/AP01)
YHTT's EPAO service is independent to our provision of apprenticeship training. To ensure consistency and impartiality the EPA cannot be carried out by the training provider delivering the apprenticeship (in accordance with IFA regulations).
Employers have the option to secure our services to conduct the end point assessment of an apprentice (not trained by YHTT)once they have achieved QTS and met the gateway during the fourth term of their apprenticeship.
Before going forward for the end-point assessment, the apprentice must have:
Achieved a minimum of level 2 in Maths and English (all apprentices’ have had to achieve level 2 English and Maths to enter the ITT programme, and therefore these qualifications will automatically have been achieved prior to the gateway)
Successfully completed an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course delivered by a provider accredited by the DfE (TRA); and
Obtained Qualified Teacher Status awarded by an accredited ITE provider.
The apprentice must have also completed a portfolio of evidence compiled over the duration of the ITT programme.
