Becoming an EPA Assessor

Careers in Assessment

We are actively seeking to build on our network of end-point assessors to partner with us to deliver our services.

ICA is registered as an Apprenticeship End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) to deliver the following new Apprenticeship Standards:

  • Compliance Risk Officer (Level 3)
  • Public Sector Compliance/Investigator Officer (Level 3)
  • Regulatory Compliance Officer (Level 4)
  • Counter Fraud Investigator (Level 4)
  • Senior Compliance/Risk Specialist (Level 6) 

The role of End Point Assessment is to assess an apprentice's competence and knowledge against the industry specific standards through the review of written portfolios/projects and face-face competency-based assessments.

We are recruiting Independent End-point Assessors (IEPAs) on a flexible, self-employed basis. 

As an IEPA, you will be responsible for carrying out end-point assessment activities under the conditions, timescales and arrangements set by us as the End-point Assessment Organisation and in accordance with the assessment plan for the apprenticeship standard. 


End-Point Assessors should have up to date occupational experience which demonstrates industry competence, or experience in the delivery of teaching/training in a relevant subject area. 

Prior competency-based assessment experience is not mandatory but is desirable. Training and ongoing support will be provided as necessary. 

A key requirement of the role will be the availability to be able to take part in UK based face-face and/or online interviews during the UK time working day. 

Applicants should have excellent verbal and written communications skills which includes the ability to produce reports and student feedback. 

Assessors will be expected to complete relevant training. 


The position offers excellent rates of pay and all End-point Assessors will receive complimentary ICA membership during their tenure. 


ICA will provide training and ongoing support for all our End Point Assessors which will ensure that they are kept up to date with the assessment requirements and the quality assurance procedures. 

Employment Conditions 

EPA Assessors are employed on a self-employed freelance basis. Assessors will be paid a set fee for each End Point Assessment conducted. The fee covers all assessment activity, grading, reporting and associated administration. 

End-point Assessors must not have any current relationship with the apprentice or employer involved in the apprenticeship.
