Here at Training Qualifications UK, we like to make sure you’re kept aware of all the most important goings-on in the world of End-Point Assessment. With that in mind, this week we provide information about changes to our processes relating to Mapping and Tracking documents and the use of Verve EPA.
Moving forwards, using our Mapping and Tracking (M&T) documents and submitting all evidence and documents to Verve EPA will be a mandatory requirement. We will no longer access external e-portfolios.
Submitting everything through Verve EPA lessens the risk of:
- incorrect evidence being accessed,
- exposure of evidence, work or personal information that our End-Point Assessors should not see, and
- evidence being missed or not located.
Using our Mapping and Tracking documents allows for the correct number of evidence items to be submitted (where these are capped) and creates a smoother and more timely assessment at EPA.
To help our Assessors identify the location of evidence quickly, you must let us know where the evidence is on a recording or in a document. If you are dealing with a recording, you should let us know the timestamp that the evidence occurs on. If it is a written document, you should let us know the page and paragraph.
This process change helps us create a fair and consistent assessment for all Apprentices and guarantee that the grade outcome awarded is reflective of the work presented.
The change will come into effect from Wednesday 1st September 2021 for all centres.
