What has to happen before a candidate can do the FESS Security EPA?

Before a candidate can be authorised for EPA, Training Provider(s) will need to contract with NET. For a copy of our agreement please email info@netservices.org.uk

Once an agreement has been signed, candidates are then required to pass the gateway check specified in the assessment plan/standard.

This gateway check includes the following:

  • The checklist for Security pathway
  • Certificated evidence of attainment of Level 2 English
  • Certificated evidence of attainment of Level 2 Maths
  • Evidence of achievement of the ECS Health and Safety test  

Candidate PLRs

The apprentice must provide formal evidence of an achievement of an acceptable equivalent qualification. This should be in the form of an official qualification certificate from the awarding organisation, or (if the apprentice does not have a qualification certificate and cannot source a replacement from the awarding organisation), a formal notification and/or statement of results, issued by the awarding organisation or a screen shot of their Personal Learner Record, which must contain apprentice details, unique learner number, qualification achieved, awarding organisation, date achieved and grade awarded. 

Please note: If you are submitting PLRs as part of gateway for EPAs you must highlight the relevant qualification. To ensure candidate privacy and data protection please ensure you only submit the required qualification evidence for gateway approval.
