IS Business Analyst

Home/Standards/IS Business Analyst

The IS Business Analyst Level 4 Apprenticeship is designed for individuals working with organisations to improve their information systems.

What does the IS Business Analyst EPA involve?

The end point assessment, or EPA, for the IS Business Analyst standard is made up of four components.



Apprentices complete a portfolio on programme and submit this for assessment after gateway. This includes evidence from real work projects which, taken together, cover the totality of the standard.



The apprentice must undertake a business-related project over a one week period, away from the day to day workplace.


Employer reference

Shows the employer’s perspective on how the apprentice has performed in the workplace and how they have applied knowledge, competencies and behaviours in work projects.


Structured interview

The structured interview with an assessor explores what has been produced in the portfolio and the project, as well as looking into how it has been produced.

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.
