END POINT ASSESSMENT SERVICE
GP Strategies End Point Assessment Service is recognised by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
An End Point Assessment (EPA) is a mandatory element of the new apprenticeship standards, it is the final assessment for an apprentice to ensure they are able to do the job they have been training for.
GP Strategies’ EPA service includes an independent review of the apprentice’s competence (the format of the assessments differs between standards) and a full consultancy package to support employers and training providers.
The EPA is separate to any qualifications or other assessment that the apprentice may undertake during the ‘on‑programme’ stage of the apprenticeship.
Employers are free to select an EPA provider who best meets their requirements. We are happy to work collectively on End-Point Assessment with employers and other training providers.
End-Point Assessment Services are available for the following apprenticeship standards:
