The End Point Assessment is a standardised 'module' that takes place at the end of any apprenticeship. The End Point Assessment for the Advanced Clinical Practitioner apprenticeship is stipulated jointly by the Institute for Apprenticeship (2018) and Skills for Health (2018). Full details can be found in the Integrated Degree Apprenticeship for Advanced Clinical Practitioner Level 7.

The End Point Assessment is a requirement of the apprenticeship process and includes no syllabus of its own. Rather, it is an assessment which is undertaken over a maximum 3 month period whereby the apprentice, having successfully completed all the 'on programme assessment' components, passes through the apprenticeship 'gateway' and is permitted to demonstrate via a synoptic assessment process the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the apprenticeship standard.
