COVID-19 Updates November 2020

In light of the recently announced national lockdown, from Thursday the fifth of November, we will conduct all End-point Assessments remotely using our secure online platform and the range of assessment plan flexibilities that are currently available.

EPA referrals will be accepted in the normal way and planned assessments will go ahead unless we have made direct contact to advise otherwise.

We appreciate that, in a small number of cases, the lack of on-site assessments will be a disappointment and may affect assessment opportunities.  However, we are committed to ensuring that apprentices have every opportunity to progress through EPA.

Please contact us on 0800 160 1899 or email if you wish to discuss assessment arrangements.

Professional Assessment Ltd provides services for training organisations and employers involved in the delivery of Apprenticeships and adult learning. Our offer includes:

End-point Assessment for a wide range of apprenticeship standards

Audit and compliance services for training providers

Quality services to support excellence in training delivery

What is PAL’s Approach?

From the beginning, PAL’s aim has been to provide a high-quality, responsive service for our clients and their apprentices.

We believe that end-point assessment should be a positive experience for all involved, as well as robust.  We believe that our compliance audits and quality services should enhance and support the training programme, and we understand that we need to continously improve our service to meet the demands of our clients.

What our clients say

The system and emails I receive informing me of each stage of the EPA are fantastic and yesterday we had our first apprenticeship certificate through! As I don’t have regular contact with all our care staff, this is great for me to keep on track of where everyone is up to.  Very impressed!

Learning and Development Partner, Housing 21

PAL has been and continues to be the most flexible, helpful, responsive and effective EPAO with which JGA has worked. Their costs are reasonable, and service is second to none. We find they are always available to provide support and anticipate continuing to work with them for a very long time.

Managing Director, JGA Group

We were thrilled to be able to work with the team at PAL to develop our quality cycle. The PAL team shared their own experiences and provided us with valuable insights, which not only helped us to evaluate our effectiveness but also develop our confidence as a team.

Head of Curriculum and Quality Assurance, Antrec Ltd

As a small local provider, we were unsure about using an external consultant to look at our data and compliance procedures. However, PAL’s input was extremely helpful and their advice has saved us a lot of time and money.  It was clear from the outset that the team is very experienced and their approach enabled us to get everybody on board with the changes.
