Boosting confidence and improving outcomes for apprentices

EPA Plus has teamed up with Fika to bring you an innovative app to support apprentices' mental fitness.

Improving mental health is huge priority for us and we believe that potential can only be fulfilled if we feel mentally fit. That’s why we’re offering FREE usage of the Fika app to apprentices who have successfully passed through Gateway to help them prepare for end-point assessment with EPA Plus.


Improving mental fitness, supporting futures

Completing the Fika essentials course will take just one hour, with results proven to:

  • Boost focus skills
  • Improve stress management
  • Build motivation, confidence and resilience
  • Improve study outcomes and performance
  • Increase employability
  • Reduce burnout.


93% of users said that Fika has a positive impact on their educational life.

Please note that NCFE is not a mental health helpline. For information and support for your mental health please visit the NHS website
