The Personal Touch of Our Smaller End-Point Assessment Organisation

Hello everyone 👋


It’s been a while since we last posted, and we’ve missed connecting with you! The reason for our silence? We’ve been heads-down, diligently supporting our training providers. But we realised it might seem like we’ve faded into the background, which is far from the truth.


Today, I’m excited to share with you the unique advantages of working with a smaller End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO), like ours. At the heart of our approach is a commitment to excellence and a personal touch that sets us apart.


Why Choose a Smaller EPAO?


Being a smaller, family-run EPAO, there’s a lot on the line for us. It’s not just a business; it’s our passion and livelihood. This means we can’t afford to be lax with the rules. Rest assured, every ‘I’ is dotted, and every ‘T’ is crossed in our operations.


What Makes Us Different?


Personalised Service: When you call us, you’ll speak to someone who knows you and your company. We’re not just another faceless organisation.

Prompt Communication: We make it a rule to reply to any communication within 24 hours. Your concerns are our top priority.

Consistent Programme Support: Our Programme Support Team is always there to ensure your apprentices are on track, managing any necessary adjustments along the way.

Efficient Gateway Processing: With a turnaround of 24–48 hours, we keep things moving smoothly.

Flexible Assessment Times: We offer assessments from as early as 8:00 to as late as 18:00, accommodating the diverse needs of apprentices.

Speedy EPA Completion: Depending on the standard, apprentices can complete their EPA within a couple of weeks.

Affordability: We offer competitive fees and a complimentary EPA every 10th booking.

Quality Assurance: With 100% IQA, we ensure a consistent, positive experience for every apprentice.

Sector-Specific Expertise: We specialise in early years, children, and young people’s sectors, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.

Our CEO, with qualifications in NNEB, Playwork L3, CYPF L5, and as a foster carer, ensures our heart and soul are embedded in the sector we serve.


Not Just a Service, But a Partnership


Choosing us means more than just ticking a box for EPA requirements. It’s about forming a partnership with a team that’s as invested in your success as you are. Our team of Independent End-Point Assessors isn’t just skilled; they’re passionate about supporting and uplifting the next generation of professionals in our sector.


We’re not here to give you a sales pitch. We’re here to guarantee a service that’s as sincere and dedicated as you are in shaping the future of our sector.
