The maturing of apprenticeship standards and end-point assessment
This workshop will explore the evolution and maturing of apprenticeship standards and end-point assessments since they were first introduced in 2014. We will discuss improvements in how standards and assessment plans are developed, sharing our insights as an EPAO into where the opportunities are but also where risks still exist. Lastly, we will look at some of the regulatory and policy changes which will affect the design, delivery, and assessment of apprenticeship standards in the years to come.
All are welcome to join the workshop and we will encourage questions, debate, and discussion from all attendees.
