Gateway to EPA


This is the period in which the apprentice crosses the threshold phase, from learning and formative assessments to the end-point assessment phase. This decision will be made by the employer, training provider, and apprentice based on the apprentice’s progress. To move onto the end-point assessment process, it is essential to have all of the basic requirements, passed all the knowledge modules and/or vendor or qualifications or professional qualifications and to provide a portfolio of work.
