What does Digital Marketer EPA involve?
The end point assessment, or EPA, for the Digital Marketer standard is made up of four components:
- Employer reference
- Structured interview
EPA 1: The portfolio
Apprentices complete a portfolio on programme and submit this for assessment after gateway. This portfolio should include evidence from real work projects which, taken together, cover the totality of the standard.
EPA 2: A project
The apprentice must undertake a business-related project over a one-week period away from the day to day workplace.
EPA 3: An employer reference
This shows the employer’s perspective on how the apprentice has performed in the workplace and how they have applied their knowledge, competencies and behaviours in work projects.
EPA 4: A structured interview with an assessor,
This interview explores what has been produced in the portfolio and the project, as well as looking into how it has been produced.
Full guidance and resources will be provided by 1st for EPA.

How does EPA work?
The apprentice’s employer chooses an end point assessment organisation (EPAO), often with the help of their training provider.
The training provider registers the apprentice with the EPAO, giving an expected date for EPA.
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 notifies the apprentice of their results and claims their completion certificate from the ESFA.

Our EPA for the Digital Marketer apprenticeship standard is £950.
Invigilation for the project is usually carried out by either the employer or training provider. If this is not possible, please get in touch for a price that includes invigilation.
Resits are priced according to which component(s) need to be repeated.
If a re-take is needed, this is charged at the full fee of £950.
