Reformed Apprenticeships

Reformed apprenticeships contain occupational standards against which apprentices are assessed at the end of their programme to ensure they have the necessary Skills, Knowledge and Behaviours to be competent in their job.

Standards must meet the needs of employers for each role in the industry. They include English and maths skills at an appropriate level with 20% off-the-job training. 

Although the focus is on the End Point Assessment, some Standards specify certain qualifications as a requirement for professional-body membership and as a route towards the final assessment.

Independent End Point Assessment (EPA) from NOCN

EPA from NOCN ensures apprentices have the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours detailed in the standard.
