City & Guilds has been approved to deliver end-point assessment for a number of new Apprenticeship Standards.
The introduction of end-point assessment (EPA) is one of the biggest changes to apprenticeships in England, following the Government’s reforms. To meet this change, we’re working with Trailblazers (groups of employers who are designing the new Apprenticeship Standards) to develop end-point assessment for a number of Standards.
Some of these new end-point assessments have now been approved by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). As a result, we are pleased to announce that City & Guilds is on the new SFA Register of Apprentice Assessment Organisations (RoAAO).

Applications cannot be made until the SFA has approved the Standard as ‘ready for delivery’ and opened the tender process.
