There are now over 800 apprentices lined up to take their final exams on the new Level 3 RACHP EngTech Trailblazer Apprenticeship (End Point Assessment).  We now need industry professionals to help get these dedicated technicians through their final assessments and make sure that those completing their apprenticeships are all working to the same high standard by proving that they can do all of the tasks required to work in this job.  

If you (or someone you work with) is interested in a part-time, paid role as an Assessor (IEPA) please look up the City & Guilds website where more information is available. The role involves traveling to various regional centres, observing practical assessments and interviewing apprentices for their final exams. The next training session starts on 4th February and these are held regularly throughout the year.

There is often talk of a lack of new technicians joining our sector and concerns about their levels of knowledge. Becoming an apprenticeship end point Assessor is one way for you to give back to the sector and ensure that the next generation of technicians met the high standards required to work in our industry. 

You will join a team of dedicated part-time assessors (IEPAs) paid by City & Guilds, with the assessments taking place flexibly to fit with your other work commitments.  Ideal for someone with a lot of practical knowledge and experience supervising technicians who is looking for a part-time flexible role and wants to improve quality and standards.
