Continuation of flexibilities and discretions for EPA

You may remember when we contacted you in 2020 regards flexibilities and discretions put in place for the delivery of end-point assessment during the COVID-19 period.

Originally planned to last until the end of March 2021, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education has confirmed that it is further extending apprenticeship flexibilities until at least the end of August 2021.

This will mean that no flexibilities will be withdrawn before the end of August 2021.

A full statement can be found on the Institute’s site here.

A list of apprenticeships with temporary discretions or flexibilities is available here.

Further guidance from The Department of Education and the Education and Skills Funding Agency as per our previous communication is available here.

If you have any queries on any of the above, please don’t hesitate to contact your account manager who will be happy to help.
