Lead Practitioner in Adult Care Level 4 EPA Approved

Lead Practitioner in Adult Care is the latest EPA for Quest EPAO. Quest can now offer the full adult care end-point assessment range for all our employers and training providers! We are so proud of this achievement, and we have now become the one-stop shop for adult care providers.

Our training provider and employer-led systems have been a huge hit for Level 2 and 3, we have already put the Level 4 onto our EPAS platform ready for our first apprentices in March 2021.

The Level 4 is a brand new standard with no framework replacement, and offers a fantastic progression opportunity for who have achieved their Level 3 Lead Adult Care Worker. First approved on 31st March 2020, this standard has a maximum funding band of £7000 and is embedded with the Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care.

The Lead Practitioner in Adult Care will guide and inspire team members to make positive differences to someone’s life when they are faced with challenges. They will have achieved a level of self-development to be recognised as a lead practitioner within the care team, contributing to, promoting and sustaining a values-based culture at an operational level. 

Lead Practitioner in Adult Care End-Point Assessment Overview

There are two components within the EPA for Lead Practitioner in Adult Care.

Observation of Practice

Grading: Fail or Pass

Observation of Practice must include the ability to demonstrate their skills, behaviour and leadership to external/internal stakeholders. The apprentice must lead the observed activity and will have prepared for this after the gateway in agreement with the employer and EPAO. The apprentice should be given 4 weeks to prepare for this activity following the gateway. 

The observation method should last a total of 75 minutes. This should typically be comprised of 60 minutes direct observation of the agreed above activity, followed by 15 minutes of post-observation questioning. 

Professional Discussion

Grading: Fail, Pass or Distinction

The professional discussion is an in-depth, two-way discussion between the apprentice and the independent end-point assessor. The independent assessor will ask the apprentice questions in relation to knowledge, skills and behaviours, and should take 90 minutes.


Quest can now confirm the price for the Lead Practitioner in Adult Care is £825. We do not charge registration fees, centre approval fees or admin fees. Call us on 01474 704441 or email for more details on how Quest can offer you the complete adult care EPA package.
