Our End Point Assessments – Part 2 

Today we are following on from Monday’s blog post explaining to you why we recommend SS Educational Services as your End Point Assessment Organisation. 

 

One of the more common reasons training providers have given us for remaining with the current EPAOs is that it is more convenient if they deliver different types of standards to be working with just one company. Although we can understand this rationale on the surface, we feel there are other main considerations: 

 

  • The length of time it takes for the apprentice to complete their EPA. For example, our EYE L3 can be completed in under a month, compared to over 3 months in some larger EPAOs 
 
  • Financially, smaller EPAOs have lower overheads and can pass these savings onto their clients. If you work with 4 smaller EPAOs rather than 1 large, the financial savings can easily be in the tens of thousands 
 
  • You are working with people whose very livelihood relies on a good working relationship 
 
  • Small, niche, EPAOs usually have extensive knowledge in their sector 
 

Below we have looked at a sample of the fees for our standards fees for our End Point Assessments and compared them with the other EPAOs offering the same standards. SSES believe in healthy competition and having different sized EPAs, but as mentioned in the bullet points above, there can be large financial differences with the fees different EPAOs charge.
