In the time since it was launched, epaPRO has grown to become a trusted EPA management tool among End-point Assessment organisations and training providers across the UK.
What do you get when you combine the software of two industry leaders in the edtech market? You get an all-in-one platform for all your end-point assessment needs.
If you have been part of the apprenticeship space in 2023 – be it as an awarding or assessment organisation (AO), a training provider, or an apprentice – you will have no doubt seen how much it has evolved in such a short space of time.
With a value of £13.3 billion to the UK economy, and employing 160,000 people in manufacturing roles alone, the automotive industry is a significant vehicle for growth in the UK.
For many AOs and training providers, managing end-point assessment (EPA) can feel like a battle with their own admin processes. Many still rely on using several overcomplicated systems to organise EPA, meaning apprenticeship delivery suffers as a result.
First Brexit, then the pandemic, and now a cost-of-living crisis. The catering and hospitality industry has faced a barrage of challenges in recent years. Among those sits arguably the most prominent challenge of all: major staff shortages.

To give apprentices the best of chance of passing their EPA, training providers need to give them clear guidance and direction, as well as access to vital support materials for their standard.
