For end-point assessment organisations to record assessment grades for apprenticeship standards using our API


The Record a grade API lets end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs) record the outcome of assessments carried out and request certificates for both government funded and privately funded Standard apprenticeships. EPAOs can record both pass and fail outcomes.

You can use this API to:

  • record a grade and request a single certificate
  • record a grade and request a batch of certificates
  • check if a certificate exists
  • delete a certificate before it is submitted
  • request a list of valid certificate grades
  • request the list of options for a Standard
