Event description
End Point Assessment Consortium Hub

About this Event

GMLPN have been in discussion for some time with City and Guilds to develop a proposal to set up an End Point Assessment Consortium Hub for our members. Involvement in the hub would of course be optional.

The concept has been piloted in 2 hubs in the South over the past year, with lessons learned and changes to the model implemented. The principles and practicalities are now much further developed.

An EPA Consortium hub offers several opportunities to providers including:

1. Consortia members apprentices can access locally available EPA opportunities

2. Consortia are able to maximise the capacity of their assessor workforce

3. Generate additional revenue by carrying out EPAs on other members apprentices via City and Guilds EPAO

4. Expand capacity to extend their EPA IEPA supplier opportunities to City & Guilds supporting a wider provider/employer community outside of the consortia

5. Staff becoming EPAs have first hand CPD experience of the preparation that providers’ own students need to be successful at the EPA stage.

Of course there is much more detail behind this including recruitment and training of Independent EPAs (IEPAs), allocation according to supply and demand for EPAs, payment systems etc.

The more detailed model has been shared with GMLPN’s Board and Advisory Board and was received positively.

The next step is to share the model and the opportunity to become involved as provider organisations, to the wider membership.

GMLPN and City and Guilds are holding an event/workshop on Thursday 5th Dec 11am-2pm including lunch to enable those providers interested to learn more about the EPA Consortium Hub model and how it would work across GMLPN membership, regardless of which Qualification Organisations you currently work with.

If you have any further questions or wish to discuss please call or e mail Anne Gornall 07909612946 /anne.g@gmlpn.co.uk or Matt Leigh 07530075650/matthew.l@gmlpn.co.uk
