Introduction and overview


This doc explains the necessities for end-point evaluation (EPA) for the civil engineering senior technician apprentices. Finish-point evaluation organisations (EPAOs) should observe this when designing and delivering their EPA.

Civil engineering senior technician apprentices, their employers and coaching suppliers ought to learn this doc.

An authorised EPAO should conduct the EPA for this apprenticeship. Employers should choose an authorised EPAO from the Training and Abilities Funding Company’s Register of end-point evaluation organisations (RoEPAO).

A full-time apprentice sometimes spends 36 months on-programme (this implies in coaching earlier than the gateway) working in the direction of competence as a civil engineering senior technician. All apprentices should spend at the very least 12 months on-programme. All apprentices should spend at the very least 20% of their on-programme time finishing off-the-job coaching.

This EPA has 2 EPA strategies.

The grades out there for every EPA technique are:

EPA technique 1 – technical challenge report and presentation with questioning:

EPA technique 2 – skilled dialogue underpinned by a portfolio:

The outcome from every EPA technique is mixed to determine the general apprenticeship grade. The next grades can be found for the apprenticeship:

This isn’t a definitive checklist; different proof sources will be included.

The portfolio mustn’t embody reflective accounts or any strategies of self-assessment. Any employer contributions ought to deal with direct commentary of efficiency (for instance witness statements) fairly than opinions. The proof supplied needs to be legitimate and attributable to the apprentice; the portfolio of proof ought to include an announcement from the employer and apprentice confirming this.

The EPAO mustn’t assess the portfolio of proof immediately because it underpins the dialogue. Unbiased assessors ought to overview the portfolio of proof to organize questions for the dialogue evaluation technique. They aren’t required to supply suggestions after this overview.

The EPA interval begins when the EPAO confirms all gateway necessities have been met. The expectation is they’ll do that as shortly as potential.


Evaluation strategies


The evaluation strategies will be delivered in any order.

The results of one evaluation technique doesn’t have to be identified earlier than beginning the subsequent.


Technical challenge report and presentation with questioning


Overview

A challenge includes the apprentice finishing a big and outlined piece of labor that has an actual enterprise utility and profit. The challenge should begin after the apprentice has gone by way of the gateway.

The challenge and any parts have to be assessed holistically by the impartial assessor when they’re deciding the grade for this EPA technique.

Rationale

The technical challenge displays an employer’s civil engineering challenges and is typical of the apprentice’s on a regular basis work, making certain that they will display KSBs in observe. As a part of a civil engineering senior technician’s position, they are going to be anticipated to plan and perform technical tasks, utilizing acceptable engineering ideas, theories, processes, and superior mathematical and knowledge evaluation abilities, earlier than evaluating and proposing acceptable civil engineering options, with consideration for a spread of things, again to numerous audiences by way of reviews, shows and discussions. Subsequently, this technique of evaluation is deemed as essentially the most acceptable for this occupation because it precisely displays the environments and present office duties of the apprentice. The technical challenge report, presentation and questioning enable for efficient evaluation of the KSBs assigned to this evaluation technique.

Part 1: Undertaking with a challenge output

Supply

Apprentices should full a challenge which can be based mostly on any of the next:

  • a selected downside
  • a recurring problem
  • an thought or alternative.

The EPAO should present detailed specs with what have to be included within the challenge to permit an apprentice to proof the KSBs mapped to the EPA technique to the best out there grade.

The challenge output have to be within the type of a report.

The apprentice should begin the challenge after the gateway. They need to full and submit the report back to the EPAO after a most of 6 weeks. The employer ought to make sure the apprentice has the time and sources inside this era, to plan and full their challenge. The apprentice should full their challenge and the manufacturing of all its parts unaided.

The apprentice may fit as a part of a crew which may embody technical inner or exterior assist. Nevertheless, the challenge output have to be the apprentice’s personal work and might be reflective of their very own position and contribution. The apprentice and their employer should verify that the challenge output(s) is the apprentice’s personal work when it’s submitted.

The report should embody at the very least:

The technical challenge report and all appendices of supporting proof immediately demonstrating efficiency of KSBs have to be attributable to the apprentice in full. Proof have to be accompanied by a witness assertion outlining the apprentice’s contribution, signed by the apprentice and their employer thereby authenticating it.

Instance appendices of supporting proof could embody:

  • plans
  • diagrams
  • calculations
  • designs
  • suggestions
  • video clips

This checklist is just not definitive and different proof sources other than self-reflection are permissible.

To permit the apprentice to use for skilled registration on completion of the apprenticeship, two impartial assessors should holistically assess all evaluation strategies, consistent with the impartial assessor necessities set out on this plan. They are going to have equal accountability in grading the evaluation. Using two impartial assessors will allow the supply of stability to evaluation, to usher in higher breadth and depth of technical experience to questioning and dialogue with the apprentice, elucidating extra correct grading selections.

Within the occasion that the 2 impartial assessors can’t agree on whether or not to grade the technical challenge and presentation with a go, fail or distinction, the EPAO is required to average in accordance with their moderation procedures. The EPAO will then make the ultimate choice on the grade to award based mostly on the evaluation proof offered.

The challenge report has a most phrase rely of 3500 phrases. A tolerance of 10% above or beneath the phrase rely is allowed on the apprentice’s discretion. Appendices, references and diagrams usually are not included on this whole. The challenge report should map, in an appendix, the way it evidences the related KSBs mapped to this EPA technique.


Skilled dialogue underpinned by a portfolio


Overview

Within the skilled dialogue, an impartial assessor and apprentice have a proper two-way dialog. It provides the apprentice the chance to display their competency throughout the KSBs as proven within the mapping.

Rationale

The skilled dialogue is a legitimate technique to evaluate these KSBs that aren’t more likely to happen within the technical challenge report. Civil engineering senior technicians might be anticipated to have the ability to focus on their portfolio, the place proof and outcomes of work-based duties or tasks carried out as a part of their apprenticeship, can be utilized to underpin evaluation in a proper setting and the place apprentices’ will be capable to clarify intimately their work..

Supply

The skilled dialogue have to be structured to offer the apprentice the chance to display the KSBs mapped to this EPA technique to the best out there grade.

The aim of the impartial assessor’s questions might be to:

  • make clear any questions the impartial assessors have from their overview of the portfolio
  • discover facets of the work, together with the way it was carried out, in additional element
  • require the apprentice to attract on their portfolio proof to display the KSBs

The EPAO should give an apprentice 3 weeks discover of the skilled dialogue.

The impartial assessor will need to have at the very least 3 week(s) to overview the supporting documentation.

Apprentices will need to have entry to their portfolio of proof in the course of the skilled dialogue.

Apprentices can confer with and illustrate their solutions with proof from their portfolio of proof, nonetheless the portfolio of proof is just not immediately assessed.

The skilled dialogue should final for 40 minutes. The impartial assessor can improve the time of the skilled dialogue by as much as 10%. This time is to permit the apprentice to answer a query if essential.

For the skilled dialogue, the impartial assessor should ask at the very least 6 questions. Comply with-up questions are allowed. The impartial assessor should use the questions from the EPAO’s query financial institution or create their very own questions in-line with the EPAO’s coaching. The skilled dialogue should enable the apprentice the chance to display the KSBs mapped to this EPA technique on the highest potential grade.

The impartial assessor conducts and assesses the skilled dialogue.

The impartial assessor should maintain correct data of the evaluation. The data should embody the KSBs met, the grade achieved and solutions to questions.

To permit the apprentice to use for skilled registration on completion of the apprenticeship, two impartial assessors should holistically assess all evaluation strategies, consistent with the impartial assessor necessities set out on this plan. They are going to have equal accountability in grading the evaluation. Using two impartial assessors will allow the supply of stability to evaluation, to usher in higher breadth and depth of technical experience to questioning and dialogue with the apprentice, elucidating extra correct grading selections.

Within the occasion that the 2 impartial assessors can’t agree on whether or not to grade the technical challenge and presentation with a go, fail or distinction, the EPAO is required to average in accordance with their moderation procedures. The EPAO will then make the ultimate choice on the grade to award based mostly on the evaluation proof offered.

Evaluation location

The skilled dialogue should happen in an acceptable venue chosen by the EPAO (for instance the EPAO’s or employer’s premises).

The skilled dialogue will be carried out by video conferencing. The EPAO will need to have processes in place to confirm the identification of the apprentice and make sure the apprentice is just not being aided.

The skilled dialogue ought to happen in a quiet room, free from distractions and affect.

Query and useful resource improvement

EPAOs should write an evaluation specification and query financial institution. The specification have to be related to the occupation and display the right way to assess the KSBs proven within the mapping. It is suggested that is finished in session with employers of this occupation. EPAOs ought to keep the safety and confidentiality of EPA supplies when consulting employers. The questions have to be unpredictable. A query financial institution of adequate measurement will assist this. The evaluation specification and questions have to be reviewed at the very least every year to make sure they continue to be fit-for-purpose.

EPAOs will develop purpose-built query banks and be sure that acceptable high quality assurance procedures are in place, for instance, contemplating standardisation, coaching and moderation. EPAOs will be sure that questions are refined and developed to a excessive commonplace.

EPAOs should be sure that apprentices have a special set of questions within the case of re-sits or re-takes.

EPAOs should produce the next supplies to assist the skilled dialogue underpinned by a portfolio:

  • impartial assessor evaluation supplies which embody:
    • coaching supplies
    • administration supplies
    • moderation and standardisation supplies
    • steerage supplies
