Associate Project Manager

The End-Point Assessment for the Associate Project Manager apprenticeship will include a Presentation and a Professional Discussion, both supported by a Portfolio of Evidence.

What they do

Because of their complexity, business projects must be well managed to ensure their success. An Associate Project Manager will help manage projects by knowing what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved, how long it will take and what it will cost.

They will work closely with a motivated and integrated project team and use their Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours to effectively meet the required project outcomes. To be successful in their role, an Associate Project Manager must develop great organisational, planning, leadership, management and communication skills. An Associate Project Manager’s job titles may vary across organisations, but they can typically include: Assistant Project Manager, Junior Project Manager or Project Team Leader. Some companies may also use ‘Project Manager’ as a generic job title.

EPA components for an Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship

  • Presentation supported by a Portfolio of Evidence
  • Professional Discussion supported by the same Portfolio of Evidence


The Apprentice will give a presentation lasting 20-30 minutes (+10%) in which they will address five of the standard’s learning areas. The Presentation should draw upon evidence presented in the Apprentice’s Portfolio of Evidence to showcase how they have demonstrated the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours in the five chosen areas during their time on programme.

Each of the areas will be scored out of five points, giving a total possible score of 25.

Professional Discussion 

The Professional Discussion is a structured, two-way discussion between the Apprentice and their End-Point Assessor. The Professional Discussion will last 45 minutes (+10%). The End-Point Assessor will review the Portfolio of Evidence in order to prepare questions related to the 10 learning areas assigned to this assessment method by the Apprentice.

Each of the areas will be scored out of five points, giving a total possible score of 50.

*25% registration fee is transferrable to a new registration should an Apprentice withdraw from the apprenticeship. Upon receipt Apprentices, Employers and Training Providers will gain access to the TQUK EPA management suite.

**75% fee paid at gateway in non-refundable as we anticipate that once the apprentice has passed through gateway they will be ready to undertake the end-point assessment elements. If the 75% payable upon gateway is not paid within 30 days of invoice we, as the EPAO, will put a hold on any end-point assessment activities being undertaken and any certification processes.
