External Quality Assurance (EQA) monitors the end-point assessment that apprentices undertake at the end of their apprenticeship.
The Quality Strategy sets out best practice expectations before, during, and after apprenticeships.
This guidance supports reasonable adjustments within the end-point assessment process for apprentices with additional support needs.
IfATE is seeking applications to a directory of professional and employer-led bodies that supports IfATE, Ofqual and the Office for Students (OfS).
The transfer of EQA to Ofqual and the OfS (for integrated degrees) means that there will be changes for EPAOs and existing EQAPs. There will be a transition period of two years as we implement changes to the EQA system.
