HOW WILL MY END-POINT ASSESSMENTS BE CONDUCTED?

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic most assessments are being conducted online using video conferencing software - unless a Reasonable Adjustments form, which identifies the need for the assessment to take place face-to-face has been approved (or if explicitly requested by your employer or training provider, that all assessments are to be delivered face-to-face).

 

On 10th December 2021, IfATE announced that assessment flexibilities and temporary discretions that have been in place are now extended until Monday 28th February 2022 due to Covid-19. This decision was made based on the Government’s announcement of a move to Plan B.

WHAT IS THE PLANNING MEETING?

The planning meeting is a phone call between the apprentice, their line manager and an Innovate Awarding representative from our central bookings team. This call lasts no more than 30 minutes and is when the end point assessment components will be scheduled. This is also an opportunity to ask questions and ensure that everything is clear before the assessments begin.

WHEN WILL MY END-POINT ASSESSMENTS BE?

End point assessments will be scheduled following your gateway with your Training Provider and Employer, at a planning meeting with an Innovate Awarding representative. Where the assessment plan allows, Innovate Awarding aims to take you from gateway to certification within 30 days.

HOW DO I FIND OUT MY GRADE ONCE I HAVE COMPLETED MY END-POINT ASSESSMENT?

Your final grade will be communicated to you by your Training Provider.

WHERE DO END-POINT ASSESSMENTS TAKE PLACE?

During the COVID-19 crisis Innovate Awarding have been utilising temporary discretions from the Institute for apprenticeships and carrying out all assessments remotely where possible.

 

Currently, where there is no alternative and a face-to-face assessment is required in order to progress through End-point Assessment, this will be carefully considered along with completion of a Reasonable Adjustment and Risk Assessment.

WHERE IS MY CERTIFICATE?

If you have not yet received your certificate, there is no need to worry. Innovate Awarding submit your record following completion to the ESFA, who will then process your completion and send your certificate directly to your workplace. If you have not received your certificate 2 months after your assessments, please get in touch and we will look into this for you.
