End-Point Assessment assessor

The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) are an approved End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO). This means we can conduct independent End-Point Assessment of apprentices on particular standards. To see which standards the IMI are approved against, please see the Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations.

Show/Hide

It is our role to ensure end-point assessments are conducted and assessed consistently for all apprentices.

As part of our service at EPA stage, we are required to supply independent, specialist assessors who will be responsible for determining the final grade of an apprentice at the end of their apprenticeship. Grading criteria and assessor requirements will be stated within the assessment plan of an apprenticeship standard.

We are now looking to recruit specialist assessors to take on this independent role for upcoming EPA events at various locations throughout England. Currently, all roles will be on a consultancy basis, with daily rates starting from £250 up to £1000 plus expenses. Day rates will vary dependent on the type of assessor role fulfilled. Along with recruiting for individuals, we are also looking for partnership agreements with organisations who are prepared to provide their own staff at EPA events as independent assessors.

If you are interested in becoming an EPA assessor, or working with the IMI as an EPA assessor partner organisation, please complete the Expression on Interest form online.
