Here at Training Qualifications UK, we like to make sure you’re kept aware of all the most important goings-on in the world of End-Point Assessment. With that in mind, we’re reminding you of important ESFA funding rules, EPA registering, bulk registrations, gateway support and booking a training session.
It’s vital that the following information is read and understood to ensure that all processes are followed accordingly and Apprentices’ End-Point Assessment journeys are great from start to finish.
If you have any questions regarding the information below, please contact us.
ESFA Funding Rules
As per the ESFA Apprenticeship funding rules for main providers, EPA registrations must be made six months ahead of any planned EPA Dates (Gateway Submission dates).
With this in mind, we are reviewing our data to prepare for the year ahead and to support our Training Providers through the busiest period of the academic year.
We understand that the end of the academic year is a busy time for all Providers. Therefore, to ensure we are fully prepared to support you with a larger level of Apprenticeship completions, we kindly ask that all Providers register their Apprentices at least six months in advance of any planned Gateway submissions.
If you have any Apprentices that are required to complete in or before July, please register your Apprentices as soon as possible, ensuring the EPA Date provided is accurate for forecasting and planning purposes.
For support with Bulk registrations, please see our latest support video. This is also available within our library of support materials on our Verve EPA Platform.
We have recently seen an increase in Gateway rejections, based on inaccurate or missing evidence being provided upon submission.
To avoid delays, additional administration and to ensure your Apprentices are accepted through Gateway as quickly and efficiently as possible, we have developed a wide range of support materials that cover the individual Gateway requirements for each Standard.
Alongside this, we also have the below support videos.
All TQUK support materials and videos are fully accessible and are available in our Support Materials Section on our Verve EPA Platform.
