New EPA qualification from Highfield

epa qualificationA new qualification has been launched that will support those who plan to assess apprentices undertaking end-point assessments (EPA).

The Highfield Level 3 Award in Undertaking End-Point Assessment (RQF) will provide specific knowledge and skills to those who already have sector competence within the areas of approved apprenticeship standards, but would like to gain a more specialised understanding of EPA processes and practices.

Covering assessment methods that are used in the majority of assessment plans for approved apprenticeships, it will support assessors in understanding the different types of EPA and the role of the EPA assessor.

The qualification has been designed to meet the needs of employers, training providers and assessors while embracing the wider changes happening to apprenticeships, and will ensure assessors have a qualification that is fit for purpose and covers the intricacies of the new EPA process. 

It can be delivered by training centres that are recognised as Highfield approved centres, and sits on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which is regulated by Ofqual.

Fees per registration per candidate are:

  • 0-99 £25
  • 100+ £20
