CIOB accepted onto register of end-point assessment organisations
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has been officially accepted on the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) register of end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs). This means CIOB can deliver end-point assessments (EPA) for all apprentices registered onto the Level 6 Construction Site Management Standard.
CIOB has also made ESFA applications to EPA Level 6 Design and Construction Management and Level 6 Construction Quantity Surveyor. CIOB will also be offering access to MCIOB for all apprentices if their employers and training providers have entered into an EPA partnership with CIOB.
As of 1 February 2022, no Construction Site Management apprentices have passed through their gateway meeting to access their EPA. CIOB is well positioned to support their partners (including employers and training providers) to ensure all apprentices are EPA ready and to inform them as to how they can utilise their apprenticeship on-programme portfolio of evidence to meet the required standard to access MCIOB.
Steve Conopo, apprenticeship manager at CIOB, said, "We are delighted to have been accepted on the register of end-point assessment organisations. It is important for the sector and apprenticeship reform that organisations like ours raise the bar to ensure all apprentices that reach their gateway meeting are fully prepared for their EPA, unlocking their potential. We offer a seamless transition from on-programme journey to assessment, and our expert team of independent, end-point assessors (IEPA) will be on hand to fully support apprentices through each stage of their EPA. To be awarded an apprenticeship certificate and access to MCIOB is very prestigious. I want to reassure employers that all apprentices who have completed their EPA with the CIOB will have fully demonstrated their competences and be ready to hit the ground running from day one of their post apprenticeship employment”.
