End-Point Assessment (EPA) update - November 2021
An update on everything new within End-Point Assesments (EPA). With a range of changes happening within the Apprenticeship space, here are some key updates happening as of now.
Update on cut off dates for EPA assessment and gateway sign off
The last date for gateway sign-off before Christmas will be 21 December, 2021.
Please be aware when booking assessment for the new year to allow time for these to be approved. Please consider for assessment the first week back in 2022, please make sure the booking is made by 17 December, 2021 so the planning meeting can be conducted in a timely manner.
The sitting of EPA assessment to receive a grade before Christmas will have 15 December, 2021 as the cut off. EPA can be conducted up to the 22 December, 2021 but the grade will not be released until the new year.
The cut off dates for paper tests to be sent out is 17 December, 2021.
Remote invigilated test results will take longer to get released over the Christmas and New Year period as they need internal review, to take account of the 10-day Service Level Agreement we have.
Pearson have recently been approved to deliver the Teaching Assistant Level 3. Development will commence in early 2022.
We would also like to thank you for engaging with the ACE360 data cleanse activity, to help with forecasting and planning of upcoming assessments.
A recent update made by ACE360 is the ability to choose the apprentice certification address. You are able to update the address up to the point of EPA grade being issued.
We wish you all a restful festive break and look forward to continuing to work with you all next year.
