Choosing the right end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) is often a time-consuming, challenging and subjective exercise.

With so many factors to consider, it can be difficult to feel confident that you’re getting the best value and service for you and your apprentices.

Which is why we wanted to make this process easier.

We’ve consolidated the collective experience and knowledge gained from our work with hundreds of employers and training providers to develop a simple guide to support you in ensuring your EPAO delivers value for your apprentice.

This objective guide offers a structured formula to help identify your unique needs as an apprenticeship provider, before outlining clear steps that you can take to match your needs to an EPAO that is truly apprentice centric.
