Your EPAO for Retailer (Level 2)
Your shop floor is the heart of your business. Yet 55% of retailers report a skills gap when it comes to customer care, with 60% finding it difficult to recruit skilled employees to fill that gap. This is why it’s vital for your business to nurture the talent you already have.
As your End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for the Retailer standard Instructus Skills can ensure that your learner develops the skills your business needs.
End Point Assessment for Retailer (Level 2) is made up of three assessment components:
Knowledge Test: A one hour multiple-choice test of scenario-based questions.
Practical Observation: A two-hour observation of the learner in the retail environment which assesses their knowledge, skills and behaviours.
Professional Discussion: A conversation between the learner and the assessor which identifies the learner’s competence and behaviours.
As the UK’s pan-sector skills authority we’ve been developing the competencies and behaviours that underpin apprenticeship standards since 1996. This experience gives us unmatched insight and ensures that your learner is in safe hands.
