  • Apprentices who started their apprenticeship between 04/03/2019 and 27/09/2021 will be assessed against ST0228/IfATE v1.1/AP01 unless the provider, employer or apprentice agree to move to AP04.
  • Apprentices who started their apprenticeship between 28/09/2021 and 25/06/2023 will be assessed against ST0228/IfATE v1.2/AP04.
  • Apprentices who started their apprenticeship on or after 26/06/2023 will be assessed against ST0228/IfATE v1.3/AP04.

Temporary Dispensation - ST0228/IfATE v1.3/AP04

A temporary dispensation has been applied to the assessment plan for this apprenticeship. The dispensation will last until all apprentices on the current version have completed.

End-point assessment organisations (EPAOs) delivering EPAs for the apprenticeship will implement the dispensation as required, supported and monitored by the relevant EQA provider.

The key changes are:

Assessment Method 3 – Professional discussion

The independent assessor will pick a minimum of 4 preparation and cooking techniques to discuss during the professional discussion.
