Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care

This is a great opportunity to achieve self-development and to be recognised as a lead practitioner within the care team, who contributes to, promotes and sustains a values-based culture at an operational level.

End-point assessment - What is this?
End-point assessment is a new way of assuring quality in the apprenticeship system. It replaces the existing model of continuous assessment resulting in qualifications.
Once an apprentice has completed their apprenticeship, they will be ‘signed off’ by their employer/ provider as ready for end-point assessment of their knowledge and practical capabilities. In most cases, the assessment will be graded and must show the apprentice is fully competent and productive in the occupation.
Lead Practitioner in Adult Care End Point Assessment consists of:
Observation of practice
