Getting the right skills, for the right jobs, to the right people

We are leading experts in end-point assessment (EPA), with an offer built around exceptional service.

As an EPA customer at NCFE, you'll be assigned a dedicated relationship contact from day one to ensure that you're supported at every stage of your EPA process. We also stand by our service-level agreements and offer a transparent pricing structure to ensure that employers, training providers and apprentices have trust, transparency, and confidence in the EPA process. You'll benefit from:

  • Guaranteed access to your chosen Gateway progression date* – giving you the flexibility to offer the best options for your apprentices
  • No hidden fees – we have no cancellation fee or charges for changing your EPA start date before Gateway
  • Gateway validation within 4 working days – put us to the test
  • Complete EPAs within 8 weeks of your Gateway acceptance date** – allowing for flexible delivery
  • Feedback and results on each assessment component within 5 working days

*Apprentices must register 90 days before Gateway progression.   

**Where you give 8 weeks’ notice – with some exceptions where EPA plans outline specific timelines.
