We took over responsibility for external quality assurance of the following apprenticeship standards from Open Awards at the start of April 2019: 


We thought it might be useful to draw everyone together to meet the EQA team, discuss our approach to EQA and what you can expect in working with NSAR. With that in mind we would like to invite End Point Assessment organisations to attend our

Date: Wednesday, 5th June 2019


Time: Registration from 10.00am, event 10.30am to 4.00pm


Location: Business Central Darlington, 2 Union Square

Central Park, Darlington DL1 1GL


Car Parking: Please note there is no car parking available at the Business Centre for visitors, location of nearby parking – CAR PARKING

Registration: Please contact Bev Robinson on 01325 734878 or bev.robinson@nsar.co.uk to book by Friday 31st May 2019


We will discuss our approach to EQA with you, answer questions and we will also use this as an opportunity to generate some insight into how the different standards and assessment plans are working out and how you are finding implementing the plans. We use this insight to establish where to start our EQA work. This has proven to be a successful early engagement exercise for our EQA work in

Digital and Rail and provides us with some solid evidence about how EPA is progressing and what the challenges faced are.
