Express Delivery Operative End-Point Assessment

Home / Services / Express Delivery Operative End-Point Assessment

Express Delivery Operative apprentices can work in any environment and their role varies between different companies. However, every apprenticeship has an End-Point Assessment (EPA) Plan. An EPA Plan first sets out the specific assessment Gateway requirements for that standard, which must be met before an apprentice can take an EPA. RTITB offers expert EPAs dedicated to the logistics industry only.

The End-Point Assessment for the Express Delivery Operative (ST0103) has two components: a short answer question and scenario test, followed by a practical test. These can take place on the same day or can be split over separate days. The apprentice will achieve a grade of a pass or distinction.

HOW DOES A EXPRESS DELIVERY OPERATIVE EPA WORK?

The Express Delivery Operative EPA consists of three parts, a multiple-choice test, a role simulation, and a professional discussion, which together provide a robust process to ensure a consistent outcome. Performance in the EPA will determine the apprenticeship grade of pass or distinction.

The multiple-choice test

This can be on paper or online, takes 45 minutes and covers knowledge of Technical Operations, Finance, Safety and Contingencies.

The role simulation

This takes 40 minutes and tests the skills and behaviours relating to Technical Operations, Safety, and Contingencies. Each role simulation is based on a typical operational duty in express delivery.

The professional discussion

This lasts 40 minutes and explores knowledge, skills, and behaviours across all four areas of the Standard: Technical Operations, Finance, Safety, and Contingencies. The RTITB Assessor will ask questions about understanding of the job role, duties and responsibilities, specific parts of the training received, opinions about the training received and the behaviours needed in the job role.

The Express Delivery Operative EPA will take place on a pre-booked date, time, and site. Usually, it will take place in the apprentice’s usual workplace, though parts may be in a classroom and/or at a Training Provider’s premises.
