What does Content Creator EPA involve?

The 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 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 and how to prepare for it.

  • The apprentice completes Gateway and schedules their EPA.

  • 1st for EPA provides full support and guidance to help the apprentice prepare for EPA.

  • EPA is carried out with a qualified assessor.

  • 1st for EPA carries out quality checks, then emails the apprentice their results and claims their completion certificate from the ESFA.
