Updated 19 November

2020-21 EPA dispensations –
Covid-19

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we understand the challenges you and your apprentices are facing, due to social distancing and other local restrictions and containment measures. We are committed to supporting you through these challenging and exceptional circumstances.

We have created updated guidance to help you to understand the range of adaptations, flexibilities and mitigations for all of our apprenticeship standards and through all stages of the apprenticeship journey – on-programme, gateway and the end-point assessment.

We will continually update information and guidance relating to dispensations and flexibilities for assessments due to take place throughout the remainder of 2020 and until summer 2021.
