End Point Assessment

CMI has been setting the bar for best practice in management and leadership for over 60 years. We know that working with us will provide you with an apprenticeship qualification that’s highly valued by employers and can boost career prospects.

What is End Point Assessment?

End Point Assessment (EPA) is the final assessment process at the end of an apprenticeship. This is designed to assess learners’ knowledge and skills in an impartial way to confirm an apprentice’s understanding.

Underpinned by our Professional Standard of practice and our core values, we strive to fulfil our mission to increase the quantity and standard of professionally qualified managers and leaders. As an End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO), CMI is able to offer complete end-to-end Apprenticeship solutions as a full partner, or just as your EPAO.
