How is the apprenticeship assessed?

The apprentices will undergo regular evaluation sessions with trainers and managers. This will enable them to practice key end assessment tasks, including Q&A sessions, practical observations, and professional discussions. To prepare for a final end point assessment, apprentices will be asked to complete a number of activities in-between visits to build confidence and competence in the knowledge, skills and behaviours areas.

End point assessment

Apprentices access End Point Assessment following a gateway discussion with their employer and Regional Trainer where entry requirements are discussed, checked and recorded including functional skills at the required level. The Healthcare Support Worker Level 2 End Point Assessment will include the following types of assessment:

Multiple choice questions

An array of questions which the learner must select the correct answer(s) from multiple choices. This format of assessment tests knowledge against a specific set of requirements.

Benefits of multiple choice question tests include convenience, soundness of understanding and a comprehension of how the standard maps across to the knowledge required in the role.

Observation of practice

A structured and planned period where the learner can demonstrate their ability and skills to their Assessor. It allows the Assessor to observe and record the required skills and behaviours of the standard in the learner’s normal work.

Benefits of the observation include authenticating that the learned skills and behaviours are embedded, reduction of time taken up though examination and allows the learner to demonstrate a comprehension of how the standard maps across to the skills and behaviours required in the role.

Portfolio review & interview

The professional discussion is a formal meeting where the learner will be asked questions related to the standard and may be based on the knowledge, skills and behaviours learned during the course. This can also include their portfolio, or any projects completed.

Benefits of the professional discussion include authenticating that the learned skills and behaviours are embedded, reduction of time taken up through examination and allows the learner to demonstrate a comprehension of how the standard maps across to the skills and behaviours required in the role.
