Situational Judgement Test
1. Start your preparation as early as possible
We highly recommend you start the preparation for your End-Point Assessment as early as possible. By doing so, this will allow you to understand how the standards you are learning will be assessed and in turn how best to prepare for them during your assessment.
2. Understand what is being assessed
It is essential to understand which specific standards are being assessed in the Situational Judgement Test. This will allow you to focus your preparation in these specific areas to give you the best opportunity to achieve the highest possible outcome.
You can find this information in the Assessment Plan provided by the Institute of Apprenticeships and Technical Education.
3. Ask for help if you need it!
We are available to discuss and support you with any aspect of your End-Point Assessment once you have successfully passed 'Gateway'. Prior to this your Training Provider is usually the best point of contact for any support or queries that you may have.

Failure to comply with this policy during your assessment is likely to result in a 'Fail' grade being awarded and may result in further action being taken, depending on the type/nature of the breach/violation that has occurred.
