End-Point Assessment Service
We go the extra mile to deliver positive and fair assessment experiences for apprentices in our sector.
End-Point Assessment (EPA) is the final, independent assessment of an apprentice that gives employers confidence that apprentices can perform in the occupation they have been trained in.

We are already delivering End Point Assessments for:

The 1st4sport EPA Journey
Our step by step EPA process is easy for you to follow.
What’s more, our EPA advisors will be on hand to guide you through every step of the journey.
After signing the 1st4sport EPA agreement, you’ll receive a welcome call and a step by step guide to help you progress your apprentices through the 1st4sport EPA journey. What’s more, we’ll put you in touch with a 1st4sport advisor who will support you throughout the process.
The earlier you register apprentices for an EPA, the more support you’ll get. At this stage, your key contact will get access to all the 1st4sport resources and templates to help you prepare apprentices for their EPA.
Booking an EPA
The earlier you submit your preferred dates for an EPA, the more chance you’ll have of securing them. You’ll need to submit your booking a minimum of 60 days in advance of the EPA. We will of course confirm your booking in writing.
The EPA takes place at the end of the apprenticeship after all the on-programme training has been completed, after the gateway has been passed and when you are confident that the apprentice meets or exceeds the Occupational Standards.
The methods of assessment always include a discussion and observation of the practical by a 1st4sport assessor.
Prior to the assessment, you’ll submit the apprentice’s portfolio for the appointed 1st4sport assessor to review.
