All about apprenticeships

We’re committed to helping learners achieve their full potential through apprenticeships.  

From our market leading end-point assessment solutions to our supporting qualifications, we’re here to help you.

Apprenticeships have changed significantly in recent years, with a major reform taking place and employer-led apprenticeship standards replacing frameworks. Over 3,000 employers have been involved in shaping the standards, making sure apprentices gain the knowledge, skills and behaviors (KSBs) needed for their chosen job role.


End-point assessment

At the end of an apprenticeship, apprentices must take an independent end-point assessment (EPA) to complete the program and confirm that they have attained the KSBs set out in the standard.

Our EPA Plus team of experts can make your life easier when it comes to EPA, with our proactive service, transparent and flexible pricing structure, and range of guidance materials to support you and your apprentices.
