“We’re delighted to have received so many entries for our second EPA Awards, dedicated to celebrating the achievements of end point assessment organisations. All the entries were of a really high standard and demonstrate the commitment of our EPAO members to high-quality assessment practices for apprentices, employers and the wider FE sector.

“There was tough competition for the winners of each of the four EPAO categories, and our thanks to our esteemed judges who had the very difficult job of selecting our four winners.  

“I hope these inaugural awards will inspire other EPAOs who didn’t enter this year, apply next year.

“All the EPAO winners today will now be put forward for consideration to a separate independent judging panel deciding the prestigious FAB2023 Awards.

“That’s where these organisations will find out who has won EPAO of the Year 2023!”
