Join us at our regional workshop for end-point assessment (EPA) and leave with the confidence and knowledge you need to be Gateway ready from August. Network with other centres, share challenges, promote best practice, gain practical knowledge and hear from policy experts as we go through this time of change. You’ll also come away with a CPD certificate to evidence all of your learning.

The workshops will cover a range of useful areas including:

  • understanding the assessment plan and conducting ‘mock’ assessment
  • understanding grading
  • talking through and understanding the Gateway Support Packs and how they can support the preparation of apprentices for assessment
  • policy and funding band changes – what does this mean and what does the future hold?
