End-point Assessment service

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. Please see the apprenticeship reforms guide on this page for more information on these reforms. To meet this significant 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.

Many of these new End-point Assessments have now been approved by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). As a result of this, we are pleased to confirm that City & Guilds are now listed on the new SFA Register of Apprentice Assessment Organisations (RoAAO).
