Flexibility permitting EPA prior to FSQ achievement

As per the updated guidance from the government around Functional Skills relaxations Accelerate People have put in place a declaration form to support the gateway process and to ensure that the apprentice meets the below conditions of the relaxation:

  • Not to be on a break in learning (an apprentice may return from a break in learning to take their end-point assessment)
  • Meets all other gateway criteria to progress to their EPA as specified in the apprenticeship standard (except meeting the English and maths requirements)
  • Have been confirmed as ready for both their EPA and to take a functional skills qualification assessment
  • They will be starting their EPA on or before 31 May 2021

This flexibility is only available to apprentices where all possibilities to access FSQ assessment via face-to-face and remote assessment have been exhausted, and they have confirmed their intent to continue and complete their FSQ within three months of starting their EPA.

If you require a copy of this declaration form please contact us via info@accelerate-people.co.uk.
