Preparation for EPA


  • Increase apprentice and employer flexibility
  • Improved apprentice engagement face-to-face sessions become more meaningful 
  • Programme duration reductions
  • Consistent approach despite potentially having more than one assessor


20% off-the-job training is anything that can help you gain new knowledge, skills and behaviours in your role.  

Examples of off-the-job training:

  • Shadowing
  • Mentoring
  • Teaching and learning sessions with dedicated trainer
  • Self-study (time spent working on assessments/assignments)
  • Training on a new process or procedure
  • Team training and meetings
  • Visiting other companies

The EPA will test the entire programme:

  • Technical competencies
  • Technical knowledge and understanding
  • Underpinning skills, attitudes and behaviours
  • There's three sets of criteria on which the assessment and grading is made. The what, the how and the with whom.
