End Point Assessment (EPA)
Stage 1 - A project which will test the apprentice’s ability to integrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours acquired during the apprenticeship by developing a response to a technical project brief set by the Professional Engineering Institution, with a number of options and a rationale for the choice of one as the optimum solution.
A written report of 1400-1600 words which demonstrates how, in the course of their apprenticeship, the apprentice has integrated the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to be a competent Civil Engineering Technician. The report is verified by a professionally qualified engineer and will be used to inform the structured interview.
Stage 2 - A 10-minute presentation by the apprentice to the Assessor Panel showcasing their response to the project brief. This will be followed by 10-15 minutes of questions and discussion.

Progression is based on professional development with working experience, competence and guided learning, so the right candidate may find themselves moving into a full-time position and further upon completion.

Successful apprentices will follow a performance and rewards scheme every year with their line manager who will support them in reaching their full potential.
