We offer a wide range of support services, events and resources to support learners and those working with them to navigate the standards across different sectors and prepare for end-point assessment.
We are committed to ensuring that centre staff delivering apprenticeships have access to training and CPD to support them in providing a positive experience for apprentices, and giving them the best opportunity for EPA success.
Whether you are looking for EPA training specific to a standard, broader training around EPA delivery or advice and guidance to support on programme training, we are sure you will find something from our Apprenticeship training offer to meet your needs.
Getting Ready for EPA Training
‘Getting Ready for EPA training’ is designed to support you in preparing your apprentices for end-point assessment (EPA) specific to a standard. The training will explore several topics including: description of the specific assessments within EPA, assessment requirements for each assessment, the grading model and differentiation between different grades, guidance around evidence requirements and quality of evidence.
This training will assist you in providing the advice and guidance apprentices need to ensure that they are feeling confident and are well prepared for their EPA. Sessions are available as both live training sessions and, coming soon, recorded sessions to watch whenever is convenient.
Getting Ready for EPA training will begin from May 2023 for the following standards: Adult Care (Level 2), Adult Care (Level 3), Healthcare Support Worker (Level 2), Early Years (Level 2) and Early Years (Level 3).
