Working with ILM, you can deliver best in class programmes to your customers with first class quality assurance, support and assessment.

ILM's Diplomas for Managers

Designed to allow seamless delivery of the on-programme leadership and management content of the Level 3 Team Leader/Supervisor Trailblazer Apprenticeship and the Level 5 Operations/Departmental Manager Apprenticeship, the ILM's new Diploma qualifications offer the perfect solution for training providers wishing to deliver apprenticeships to employers.

By embedding an ILM Diploma within your management apprenticeships, ILM will help you to maintain the highest levels of quality to prepare learners for rigorous end-point-assessment and ensure they meet the new standards, and that the skills developed during the apprenticeship are fully recognised.

What is End Point Assessment?

End Point Assessment (EPA) is a new way of assuring quality in the apprenticeship system. It replaces the existing model of continuous assessment resulting in qualifications. 

Once an apprentice has completed their gateway assessments, they will be ‘signed off’ by their employer as ready for end-point assessment of their knowledge and practical capabilities. In most cases, the assessment will be graded and must show the apprentice is fully competent and productive in the occupation.

The EPA can only be carried out by an independent Apprentice Assessment Organisation (AAO). The AAO cannot be the training provider or the employer, and cannot have been directly involved in the delivery of the apprenticeship.

ILM is approved to offer end point assessment for the Team Leader / Supervisor at Level 3 and Operations / Departmental Manager at Level 5 trailblazer apprenticeships.
