The role involves traveling to various regional centres, observing practical assessments and interviewing apprentices for their final exams. The next training session starts on 4 February and these are held regularly throughout the year.

“Becoming an apprenticeship end point assessor is one way for you to give back to the sector and ensure that the next generation of technicians met the high standards required to work in our industry,” the IoR says.
