Senior College Assessor’s Role in End Point Assessment for New Apprenticeship Standard
Date: 25th March 2019
York based Askham Bryan College is part of a Land Based colleges collaboration to supply expert practitioners to Land Based Assessment Ltd who carry out the End Point Assessment of the next generation of apprentices, on behalf of Lantra, the End Point Assessment Organisation.
Senior Apprenticeship Assessor at the college, John Lascelles, has been heavily involved in the development of the End Point Assessment materials for Level 3 Land Based Service Engineering since September 2018. Last month saw the first of these assessments being carried out by the Land Based Assessment Ltd team.
John said “I have been privileged to be involved in these developments, which has given me the opportunity to give something back to my industry by ensuring these assessments produce high quality engineers. It has also been a pleasure to see the first apprentices achieve these new qualifications. I am really pleased with how the apprentices have engaged with the process.”
The end point assessment is what is says. It assesses the skills of an apprentice at the end of their training to ensure they have achieved the required level of skills and knowledge, to be deemed competent. The engineering apprenticeship standard was developed by the Land Based Engineering Trailblazer Group which was led by employers and other major stakeholders to ensure that the training that apprentice engineers receive is fully relevant to industry needs.
Askham Bryan College including Newton Rigg, are currently involved in the training of over 150 engineering apprentices, and have over 850 apprentices in total in land based subjects training throughout England.Back to all News
