Free webinar: The Ofqual recognition process for EPAOs – what you should know before applying

February 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Are you an EPAO who is yet to complete the Ofqual recognition process?

Almost all end-point assessments in future will be quality assured by Ofqual, meaning EPAOs of all types will need to be Ofqual-approved. The application process for this is intensive and robust – as an EPAO, there’s a lot to consider and get right.

That’s why on Thursday 10 February (12-1pm) we’re hosting a free webinar with Ofqual and the IfATE to share lessons learnt from those who have been through the process and take you through:

  • Ofqual’s quality assurance approach for end-point assessment
  • Ofqual’s application and approval process for EPAOs – what’s involved?
  • Lessons learnt from those who have been through the process – key areas of focus and pitfalls to avoid
  • What does the application process mean for new and established EPAOs
  • Top tips on preparing your application

The session will include insights and examples SDN’s work with over 60 EPAOs.
