Employability Practitioner

The Employability Practitioner Level 4 Apprenticeship is designed for individuals who help people to address and overcome obstacles to secure suitable and sustainable employment.

What does the Employability Practitioner EPA involve?

The end point assessment, or EPA, for the Employability Practitioner standard is made up of three components.


Knowledge test

The knowledge test contains 40 questions which are a mix of open questions requiring short, structured answers and multiple-choice questions.



Apprentices prepare and deliver a presentation titled “A Summary of Employability Practice, Using Evidence”. The is based on work done during the apprenticeship and allows the apprentice to evidence the end to end support they have delivered to service users. It is underpinned by a portfolio of evidence.



Apprentices are observed completing work in their normal workplace. During this time the assessor will observe the apprentice interacting with a minimum of two service users. Questions may be asked after the observation is complete.

Apprenticeship standard

An apprenticeship standard is a short document based on an occupation, outlining the knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs) needed for someone to be competent in the occupation’s duties.
