End Point Assessment Update 2
During the first opening only 13% of End Point Assessment Organisation applications have been approved, according to an article in FE Week on 19th October.
This comes as a bit of a shock when a previous article in FE Week pointed out that here are 147 approved standards, but by July this year only 56 had attracted one or more apprentices AND out of the 56 standards, a whopping 59% didn't have an approved End Point Assessment Organisation.
Are you up to date with new standards available for delivery now?
Do you know which occupations have been approved to develop a standard?
