Your EPA journey with BPEC

The BPEC roadmap to EPAs is focused, cost-effective and efficient –
for you and your apprentices

Step 01

BPEC Your Assessment Organisation

BPEC End-point Assessment experts are here to answer your questions, including discussions on scope, activity, and pricing. We are happy to present our credentials and client/apprentice references.

Step 02

The right contractual arrangements

Once you have completed the BPEC apprentice request form we will then draft an apprentice contract which is shaped around your requirements and includes agreed fees for the End-point registration and assessment delivery.

Step 03

EPA Registration

Once the contracts are agreed, and registration fee has been paid, the process is complete for your apprentices. We then send EPA supporting information and documentation, organise a meeting to discuss ongoing activity and guidance.

The earlier you engage with BPEC the more support and guidance your lecturers and apprentices gain for the EPA requirements.

Step 04

EPA Planning, Workshops & Ongoing Support

BPEC’s EPA packages include End-point Assessment preparation and support materials. In addition, we have also developed our new EPA preparation tool kits which include mock multi-choice tests, practice tasks, and more. They are designed to ensure the apprentice is familiar and confident in the process and methodologies used to confirm competence. By the time they reach gateway, the Apprentice will be ‘assessment ready’.

Step 05

Providing evidence and the Gateway

BPEC gives training providers ongoing guidance and advice on gateway requirements for each standard. This includes a planning document that highlights key dates for each assessed element and evidence submissions.

Step 06

EPA booking and amendments

We are highly responsive and flexible, scheduling EPA’s when you need them: we go the extra mile to fit in with what works for you. If you have to change your plans, just pick up the phone to your designated Key Account Manager.

Step 07

End-point Assessment

BPEC EPA looks at multiple aspects of apprentice knowledge and skills, including assessing their experience, attitudes, and behaviour through a combination of one-to-one interviews, examinations, competency tests and interviews.

Results, certification & next steps

Once the apprentice successfully completes their EPA and quality assurance has taken place, we inform the apprentice, employer and provider of the result. We claim the apprenticeship certificate via the IfATE on your behalf. The IfATE send out the certification directly to the employer. The ILR will require updating so completion payments can be claimed via the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
