A message from the National EPA Managing Director, Ashley Robertson.
“I am extremely proud of what National EPA has been able to achieve, since its launch and Ofqual approval in October 2021.
The team strives to deliver an Effective, Proactive and Approachable End-Point Assessment Service. The announcement we are a finalist for Best Collaboration To Deliver EPA Services amongst larger established AOs is a recognition of the dedication of all our team"
End point assessment organisations prepare to celebrate success at the EPA 2023 Awards.
The EPA Awards celebrates the achievements of end point assessment organisations in the past year.
The awards will take place during the EPA 2023 Conference, Awards and Exhibition on the 18th of May at Warwick Conferences.
The Federation’s chief executive, Tom Bewick, said:
“These annual industry awards recognise extraordinary excellence in the end point assessment of apprentices.
The EPA market has matured significantly since 2017. Thanks to reforms which FAB called for in external quality assurance (EQA), we are now at the end of a transition period where the majority of EPAOs operate in a statutory-led regulated environment.
Changes that pave the way for greater public confidence in the apprenticeship system.
These awards represent the sector’s commitment to training quality by ensuring every apprentice is assessed against workplace proficiency and competence, regardless of the occupation or where the apprentice or employer in England is based.
I’m delighted to see such a strong field of finalists making the cut this year, as we prepare for the industry’s flagship conference at Warwick on 18th May 2023 – #EPA2023.”
