Introduction of EQA Charges for Apprenticeship Standards

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) has now appointed Open Awards to carry out its External Quality Assurance service. As a result, the IfATE has confirmed that a £40 charge per apprentice will be imposed for all AM2S and FESS assessments that take place after 01 November 2019, irrespective of when the assessment was booked. AM2 is not affected.

NET has no control over these charges and will be required to pass the charge in full to the EQA provider.

NET will add the charges to centre invoices monthly for all in-scope assessments and centres will need to adjust their invoices for assessment accordingly.
