What is EPA?

End point assessment, or EPA, is the process of assessing an apprentice as they approach the end of their apprenticeship. Once all on-programme learning is complete, the apprentice goes through the Gateway stage into the EPA stage. This is where an independent EPA organisation (known as an EPAO) carries out assessment according to the apprenticeship standard’s assessment plan. Every EPAO must be on the Register of End Point Assessment Organisations.

How does EPA work?

The apprentice’s employer chooses an end point assessment organisation (EPAO), often with the help of their training provider.

The training provider registers the apprentice with the EPAO, giving an expected date for EPA.

The apprentice completes Gateway and schedules their EPA.

EPA is carried out with a qualified assessor

1st for EPA provides full support and guidance to help the apprentice prepare for EPA.

1st for EPA carries out quality checks, then notifies the apprentice of their results and claims their completion certificate from the ESFA.
