British Marine has successfully joined the register of End Point Assessment (EPA) Organisations after applying to assess against the Marina and Boatyard Operative apprenticeship standard.
All new apprenticeship standards require an EPA to take place, to synoptically assess the apprentice’s knowledge, skills and behaviours to ensure they are fully occupationally competent before being awarded their full apprenticeship.
British Marine will work with all employers who have apprentices on this standard and anticipates delivering the first assessments towards the end of the summer.
Blue Davies, Head of Training at British Marine, comments: “This is an interesting project for the team here at British Marine and the work completed so far has been well rewarded, with our application to the register approved without any amendments. This is another important step in improving apprenticeship training and assessment provision, and we're looking forward to working with both old and new colleagues in the industry.”
Information and guidance around end point assessment will be available on the British Marine website soon. In the meantime, any EPA related questions can be sent to: EPAO@britishmarine.co.uk
