End Point Assessment: Whose Problem is it anyway?

Consultation event for EPAOs – London 5th July – Cumberland Hotel, London 11am – 3pm


We would like to invite you to a half day event in London to hear from you about progress and implementation of the new Apprenticeship Standards.

The reformed Apprenticeship Standards system is still bedding itself in.

A key part of its infrastructure are the new EPAOs and the new approach to External Quality Assurance. As such we are all operating in a new environment.One in which we can learn and share experiences to develop the best way forward to ensure successful delivery of the new Apprenticeship Standards and their assessments.


We believe that there is a need for a shared narrative and that this is the time for collaborative discussions with the DfE, the IfA and ESFA on a wide range of subjects including but not limited to:

·       Data sharing;

·       Data systems;

·       Pricing of EPAO services

·       Deliverability of assessment plans;

·       Staffing and capacity; 

We are an impartial broker for the EPAOs, and would love to hear your views, concerns and how best we can create a unified voice for the End Point Assessment Organisations.
