EPA Signed Statement

Created

In the current provider guidance section 357.3 states that a signed statement by employer, provider & apprentice is still employer until the end-point assessment is completed.

Do people get another statement to cover this, as we have just been using the EPAO's gateway form, but they don't have the wording on there about the apprentice still being employed until the EPA is completed.  Also if the learner leaves whilst in gateway does this mean they cannot complete it, we thought as long as they were employed at gateway that was ok?

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

It is not employed at the gateway but employed until the end of the EPA, if not, they cannot be recorded as complete.

The two statements are different and you must hold both as evidence.

The only exception is where the redundancy rules put the learners into the Alternative Apprenticeship bracket.
