For each end point assessment that takes place, there must be a ‘designated person’ available during the process. The role of the designated person is to meet and greet the models, make them tea and coffee and be available to the IEPA for any queries.
The designated person must not be the apprentices’ trainer or assessor or anyone that has been involved with their training and assessment. If this person has not been DBS checked they will need to complete a Cheynes Training Safeguarding Declaration Form.
So that City & Guilds comply with GDPR, the designated person will be asked by the IEPA to complete a photographic consent form that all models have to sign and date confirming that they agree to having their photograph taken and used as part of the EPA evidence.
If the EPA goes over six hours for hair and three hours for barbering, the assessment will fail and the designated person will be responsible for supervising the apprentices after they complete their models.
