There is a higher demand for Independent Assessors to carry out Standard apprenticeship End Point Assessments, in many vocational areas within the industry, than there are qualified Assessors with the knowledge and understanding of how to carry out End Point Assessment. With the Government targeting 3 million apprentices there is a rapidly growing need for suitably qualified people to become Independent End Point Assessors.
