Based on the current information from the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, all assessment flexibilities (which relate to all apprenticeships) and temporary discretions (which relate to specific apprenticeships) will remain operative until the 31st of December 2021. Some assessment flexibilities will be retained after the 31st of December 2021. More information on flexibilities can be found here.
PAL will continue to provide end-point assessment using the flexibilities and temporary discretions to their full extent to ensure apprentices can progress through EPA safely.
Prior to the 31st of December 2021, it is possible to provide on-site observation where required, subject to agreement by all parties and satisfactory risk assessments.
