The End Point Assessment (EPA) for this apprenticeship will consist of two parts:
a synoptic end-test giving the apprentice the opportunity to tackle a series of business-related tasks through a simulation. This will be assessed through the existing AAT synoptic assessment that maps to the current AQ2016 Advanced Accounting Qualification (Level 3)a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates competence in the knowledge, skills and behaviours in the standard, gathered from the apprentice’s practical experience in the workplace, combined with a reflective discussion: a structured interview to examine the portfolio evidence and the learner journey in more detail. The reflective discussion will be conducted by an Independent Assessor (IA) appointed by AAT.

It’s expected that this apprenticeship will take approximately 15 to 18 months.

How will it be delivered?

Assessment will be continuous and take place in both the workplace and the College. There will be a combination of computer-based assessments and projects or work-based evidence.
