The Distinction is designed to recognise the small proportion of apprentices who are seen as outstanding employees, regularly going beyond what is required to be competent in the role and seen as having greatest potential for the future.

End-Point Assessment Structure

End-point assessment contains 2 components:

  • A portfolio of evidence created through the apprenticeship which contains a range of types of evidence demonstrating that the apprentice has met the requirements of the standard, supported by a professional discussion.
  • A structured Interview that focuses on the skills and behaviours of the Standard, testing the competence of the apprentice in the softer aspects of the role.

Grades & Certification

At the end of the apprenticeship standard, successful apprentices are awarded with Pass or Distinction. ICA will arrange for production of the final certificate from the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and they will be invited to attend an ICA Awards Ceremony.
