The end-point assessment for the Fire, Emergency and Security Systems apprenticeship is currently in development. Candidate preparation manuals and checklists, along with gateway arrangements are being developed and will available by the end of the year.
Validation activity for the security pathway EPA is scheduled for late November/early December and it is envisaged that this EPA will be available from January 2019.
Work is well advanced on the fire pathway EPA and we expect all remaining pathways to be available from end of Q1 2019.
Candidate checklists and gateway information will be available from end of November for the security pathway and end of January for the remaining pathways.
The pilot EPA centre is in Earlsfield London and we envisage additional centres becoming active during 2019.
