What does Marketing Assistant EPA involve?

End point assessment (EPA) for the Marketing Assistant standard is made up of three components:

  1. Multiple choice knowledge test
  2. Project showcase, based on marketing activity or support

EPA 1: The multiple choice knowledge test

Apprentices complete a multiple choice test online. The test contains 40 questions, with 4 possible answers each. Apprentices will have 90 minutes to complete the test. The test will be invigilated and recorded.

EPA 2: Project showcase

The apprentice must undertake a project based on marketing activity or marketing support they carry out for their employer organisation. The showcase requires apprentices to submit a 3000 word report and 8-10 presentation slides, then take part in a 60 minute professional discussion.

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

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.
