End-point assessment News
Government guidance on EPA
Gov.uk have recently published guidelines around the roles and responsibilities of each of the partners involved in EPA. This document discusses minimum requirements, resit rules and useful information for the preparation and deliver of EPA. You can find this here.
Recorded videos for apprentices and employers
We recently recorded two videos to help apprentices and employers gain a brief understanding of EPA. You can find them on our YouTube playlist here, or you can direct apprentices directly to the apprentice video using this link, and employers to this link
We’re currently working on a series of videos, aimed at apprentices to demonstrate the software used during EPA, helping them to feel more at ease in the run up to EPA.
Certificate claims and data quality
After the EPA has been completed the EPA Plus team claim the apprentice’s certificate from the ESFA. It’s important to ensure that the apprentice is registered on SEPA with the correct details (ULN, work address, name spelling etc.) as if any of these are incorrect we will be unable to claim the apprentice’s certificate.
If an apprentice fails one or more of their assessment components during the EPA process, they may be entitled to a resit. Check the assessment plan on the IfATE website or the EPA plus guidance documents for specific standard resit rules. If your apprentice requires a resit, this can be booked directly with their allocated IEPA.
We have recently created a video to demonstrate our guidance documents and sample materials. You can view the video here.
