New Single Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers to Replace EPAOs

by | 0 comments

The government’s end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) register is set to be shut down and merged with the register of apprenticeship training providers (RoATP). From August 1 the new single register will be called the “apprenticeship providers and assessment register” (APAR). The move will drop a current requirement on training providers to prove that the employer has itself chosen which organisation should deliver their apprentice’s end-point assessment (EPA), and switch to a default position of the provider choosing the EPAO. Employers can however continue to select the EPAO themselves if they wish. Click here for FE week commentary and here for a further FE Week article on the new changes.
