What does Content Creator EPA involve?

The register of end point assessment, or EPA, for the Content Creator standard is made up of two components:

  1. Project or campaign evaluation report, presentation of additional/new content and questions
  2. Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence

EPA 1: Project or campaign evaluation report, presentation of additional/new content and questions

The project or campaign itself is done on programme, in the last 6 months leading to gateway. The evaluation report is 1500 words, the presentation is 15 minutes and the questioning is 15 minutes. The presentation and questioning will be carried out by video call, one-to-one between the apprentice and our assessor.

EPA 2: Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence

The professional discussion is a one-to-one discussion between the apprentice and the assessor. The assessor will ask about the apprentice’s work, including that shown in the apprentice’s portfolio. It lasts one hour.

Full guidance and resources will be provided by 1st for EPA, including a Content Creator Toolkit that details the end point assessment plan and how to prepare for it.

EPAO Content Creator

End Point Assessment, also known as an EPA, is the evaluation process that happens when an apprentice approaches the end of their apprenticeship journey. After the culmination of all on-programme learning, the apprentice will advance from the Gateway stage to the EPA stage. During this phase, independent organisations known as End Point Assessment Organisations (EPAOs), like 1st for EPA, carry out assessments in accordance with the assessment plan outlined in the apprenticeship standard. 1st for EPA is an Ofqual recognised EPAO.
