The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education is reviewing responses to our public consultation on the future of external quality assurance (EQA) for apprenticeships.

Under the proposals all EQA would be delivered by Ofqual or, for integrated degree apprenticeships, the Office for Students (OfS).

The consultation on a simplified and strengthened model of EQA of apprenticeship assessments closed in May and responses are currently being considered. 

A spokesperson for the Institute said: “We will update on the next steps later in the summer once we have had an opportunity to fully review the consultation responses. It is important that we give careful consideration to the views and suggestions of everyone who took part.”
