End-Point Assessment (EPA) is the final assessment for an apprentice. An apprentice cannot achieve their apprenticeship without passing the End-Point Assessment.

EPA is an opportunity for an apprentice to showcase what they have learnt during their apprenticeship for a Leader in Adult Care. This assessment includes an observation of leadership and professional discussion.

End-Point Assessment for Leader in Adult Care Level 5 can be carried out remotely or face-to-face.


Gateway requirements for a Leader in Adult Care Level 5 apprentice are:

  • Evidence the apprentice has achieved Level 2 maths and English

  • Successful completion of Level 5 in Leadership and Management in Adult Care

Assessment Methods

Observation of Leadership

The apprentice will be given 4 weeks to prepare for their observation. The observation method will last 90 minutes (+10% if needed) and is comprised of two stages, a 60 minute direct observation and 30 minute post observation questioning.

Professional Discussion

Apprentices will take part in a two-way discussion with the independent assessor for 90 minutes, +10% if needed. The Independent End-Point Assessor will ask questions relating to all knowledge, skills and behaviours highlighted within this assessment method. This list can be found within the support pack on our website.
