End-point assessment for advanced dairy technologist

The end-point assessment will take place either at the workplace OR a recognised facility. The EPA include two distinct components:

  1. A work-based project, presentation and VIVA/interview that allows the apprentice to demonstrate knowledge, skills and behaviours and delivers value back to the business
  2. An observation to assess both the apprentice’s ability to work as part of a team and to produce a range of products to a satisfactory standard

A pass in the end-point assessment will demonstrate that the apprentice can apply the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of the standard in an integrated way and will satisfy the requirements for the award of an apprenticeship certificate.
