Record a grade API

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

Applies to England


The Record a grade Application Programming Interface (API) lets end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs) record the outcome of single or multiple assessments and request certificates for government funded apprenticeship Standards. EPAOs can record both pass and fail grades.

EPAOs can use the API to:

  • record a grade and request a single certificate
  • record grades and request multiple certificates
  • check if a certificate exists
  • delete a certificate before it is submitted

You can share the ESFA developer hub page with your developers or technical team.
