Apprentices allowed to take end-point assessment before their functional skills exam

A flexibility that allows apprentices to take their end-point assessment before their functional skills exam is set to be reintroduced due to awarding bodies struggling to adapt their functional skills assessments in the face of Covid-19. A timeframe for implementing this reintroduction has not yet been set.

A reminder that NSAR’s EQA team is committed to keeping employers at the centre of apprenticeship policy, supporting them in their work to ensure there is constant and continuous improvement, as well as all working to ensure we have the highest quality apprenticeship experiences and outcomes possible. We will work with our employer boards to explore how this engagement is maintained going forward.
