Accredited End Point Assessment Training for your staff – Bespoke

New Hot

The changes from frameworks to standards has raised many challenges and questions for those working with apprentices. Best for Training are working with many apprenticeship training providers to inform their staff of the major changes, how this impacts on their apprentices and staff roles and responsibilities.  By completing the 1 day blending learning programme for Highfield Level 3 Award in Undertaking End Point Assessment, you are providing your staff with excellent, relevant continuous professional development which will benefit your organisation, staff and apprentices.

We will deliver this training event for your staff in your own organisation. We would be happy to accommodate up 24 people in one group so if you would like to offer this training event to other local colleges and training providers then this would be an excellent opportunity for them and also enable your staff to share practice and experiences of the new standards with others. The programme can be adapted to meet the specific standards that organisation delivers, please email for further details.

The training day begins with an overview of standards and assessment plans; ensuring all staff fully understand the importance of these documents, their content and how this applies to the apprentices learning journey. We look at the importance of Gateway and relationships with employers to ensure apprentices are fully prepared for their End Point Assessment. We then move onto look at the assessment methods used in End Point Assessment, how these are applied in practice to enable staff to fully understand how to prepare their own apprentices for their EPA.

Our training is designed by former Ofsted inspectors and throughout the day helpful hints and tips are shared with staff to help them understand the Ofsted requirements and the best practice expected from apprenticeship providers.
