What our customers say

Innovate Awarding worked with the team at Skilltech on the design and development of epaPRO since its creation. We have received lots of positive praise from our clients on the ease of use to successfully prepare, monitor and track apprentices through End-Point Assessments. The system has ensured that we can administer our processes in the most streamlined way.

SQA has been working with Skilltech since August 2018, using their epaPRO technology to support delivery of our End-Point Assessment service. During this time, we have found Skilltech to be a very responsive partner, actively engaged in understanding our business needs and translating these into an effective technology solution.

When we had to design and run completely revamped final assessments for healthcare science trainees because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Skilltech helped us massively. They swiftly spun up an instance of epaPRO for us, worked rapidly on some developments on the platform to support some of our specific needs and provided expert guidance and support about how to use and adapt epaPRO so that we could run a revised assessment regime at scale and pace.
