Health & Social Care Standards 

End Point Assessment for Health and Social Care 

ECQN Ltd is an independent organisation that specialises in providing end point assessment services for employers and professionals in both the health care and social care service sectors.

ECQN is committed to the delivery and focus on assessments without complexities that are in some cases present in this industry. The main function of an end-point assessment involves testing for qualifications. These final assessments ensure that apprentices are able to demonstrate what they have learned and to apply this in a working environment.


The end-point assessment must demonstrate that the apprentice can perform in the occupation in a fully competent, holistic and productive way.  The assessment will be graded pass, merit or distinction. 

The end point assessment consists of:

• A situational judgement test consisting of 60 multiple choice questions based on real life scenarios. 

• A professional discussion lasting no more than 45 minutes

The apprentice must pass the situational judgement test before they attempt the professional discussion.

We would carry out a welcome meeting with the training provider/Employer to carry out a business needs meeting and agree the cost of the service and contract. There is no need for registration as we are not an awarding organisation.


We would provide you with the support tools and offer a free review of your teaching and learning support tools to ensure they will provide the best chance of passing our End-point assessment.
