BIIAB is delighted to announce that we have been approved as an End Point Assessment (EPA) organisation for the following ‘Trailblazer’ Apprenticeships:
• Commis Chef (level 2)
• Hospitality Team Member (level 2)
• Retailer (Level 2)
• Retail team leader (Level 3).
This approval by the SFA for our first EPA submission is great news for BIIAB, our centres and partners. It confirms that the BIIAB’s delivery model is recognised as meeting all of the necessary criteria. Work has commenced on developing the assessments for these four standards and we will provide further details for their launch date shortly.
Applications for EPA status do not stop here. Additional applications have been made for a number of other apprenticeship standards, with more planned for the near future – where demand remains, BIIAB intends to be an EPA organisation for any Apprenticeship Standard which covers occupational areas in which we currently work
End Point Assessments are critical to the new apprenticeship system as an apprentice cannot complete their apprenticeship without successfully achieving them. However, do not wait until then to contact us! BIIAB can help you from day one of delivery of the apprenticeship standards and to prepare your apprentices for the EPA. With public money, inspection and audit involved the risk profile for delivering the ‘new’ apprenticeships is high. BIIAB has designed Quality Assured Delivery (QAD) Packs to support the 'on programme training delivery' and 'quality assurance' of Apprenticeship Standards and to maximise the potential of the apprentice being able to achieve the EPA. Details of the how we can help you and your Teams with our QAD packs can be found by clicking here.
