End Point Assessment

The purpose of End Point Assessment is to provide a professional and independent assessment as to the knowledge, skills and behaviours of an individual at the end of their training period.

Intqual-pro are delighted to be recognised as an OFQUAL regulated End Point Assessment Organisation for a range of apprenticeships within the Protective Services and Justice sectors. We are currently the UKs leading EPA for Level 4 Intelligence Analysis and Counter Fraud Investigation standards. This is reflective of our experience and engagement within the Intelligence and Investigative community over the last 5 years, as the UKs largest provider of formally recognised Intelligence qualifications. More recently we have added Youth Justice, Security Management and Firefighting standards to our OFQUAL approved list. Our employer communication and ability to adapt EPA to suit the specific needs of the employer make us popular across over 50 employers working within the wider Protective Services sector.

Intelligence Analyst

As the UKs lead organisation in undertaking Intelligence Analysis End Point Assessment we bring specific experience from a range of EPA activities and employer engagement, allowing us to engage with multiple sectors and analytical roles. With increasing engagement with this apprenticeship standard we are the chosen EPA provider for a range of military, law enforcement, local authority, financial services, gambling sector, insurance providers and retail organisations, showing our ability to deliver consistent and relevant EPA across the breadth of the Intelligence Community.

Counter Fraud Investigation

The cross over between effective use of intelligence within the investigative process has allowed us to build close relationships with many of the UKs leading investigative agencies. From National Government to Local Authorities, insurance fraud to insider threat, we have investigative and training experience across the range of  sectors and associated roles, understanding the differences in focus and process within investigations. We have recently became the first EPA provider to assess and successfully award the Counter Fraud Investigation Apprenticeship Standard and have hundreds of apprenticeship investigators registered with us for 2022/23.

Youth Justice Practitioner

As a leading EPA across the Justice and law enforcement community we have been approached by a range of employers to add the Level 5 Youth Justice apprenticehip to our list of EPA approvals. We utilise experienced youth justice professionals with a breadth of exposure within the youth justice community to ensure that the practitioners role and scope is fully understood and ensure that EPA activity is both robust and relevant.

Security First Line Manager

Our EPA staff have worked across senior managerial positions within UK Armed Forces, Law Enforcement and Private Security establishments and bring a diverse range of perspective and experience to the assessment of this standard. Whether working in public sector security roles, private sector, physical, cyber or hybrid security functions, our EPA team and the materials produced are designed to be relevant to the apprentice and ensure a smooth and well understood assessment process.


We are also now approved for both the Operational Firefighter and Fire Safety Inspector apprenticeship standards. The specific nature of these apprenticeships and risks associated with EPA not being conducted to the highest of standards. Our Firefighter EPA team all have extensive experience as Operational Firefighters, including the design delivery and assessment of recruit and other training programmes. They all remain occupationally competent as retained firefighters, ensuring that understandinfg of service needs and requirements are current and EPA activities relevant.

Engagement and Expertise

At Intqual-pro we will work closely with both employer and training provider to understand the nature and scope of the role of each individual and the intelligence processes and tasks for which they have responsibility. Through doing this we can ensure that End Point Assessment remains consistent, whilst also being relevant to role and sector, mapping clearly to the knowledge, skills and behaviours that employers require Intelligence professionals to hold. Our nominated End Point Assessment staff have a combined experience of hundreds of years as intelligence and investigative professionals, working across military, law enforcement, justice, financial services and utility sectors. The assessment team approach every organisation with a bespoke and organisationally specific assessment plan, ensuring that both employer and apprentice gets the assessment experience that is relevant, robust and credible. End Point Assessment is quality assured to the highest standards and in our 8 years an Intelligence sector specialist centre, not a single assessment decision has been appealed or challenged, testament to the rigour and professionalism that our assessors put into their assessment planning and feedback.

EPA Pricing

At Intqual-pro we factor in employer engagement and understanding the specific needs and role of the apprentice to our pricing structure. Whether assessment is conducted in person or remotely, the same rigour and dilligence is applied to ensuring that the assessment strategy and materials are right for the apprentice and their employer.

What our apprentices and employers say

I received very detailed feedback which I found useful. It was clear where I had done really well and where there could have been room for improvement.

My assessor was really flexible around timings and when I had to reschedule parts of my EPA.

The assessors are extremely professional and knowledgeable.

The guidance documents are very detailed and easy to refer to.

I cannot fault my assessor. He made the process incredibly smooth and made me feel at ease during all of my assessments and I received feedback promptly.

Intelligence Analyst Apprentice

The assessor was very professional and made a quite daunting/stressful process enjoyable.

EPA was explained in detail throughout the full course and the process was exactly as described. The EPA platform was very ease to use and my assessor was very accommodating on times and dates.
