COVID-19 Update July 2020

We are currently able to conduct end-point assessment remotely for all standards we are approved to assess.

In order to safeguard our clients, the public and our team, we will conduct assessment remotely by default. Please contact us if you specifically require on-site assessment so that we can discuss the potential options.

Our website Policies page contains our guidance and documentation for site visits during the COVID pandemic.

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

PAL is prompt and professional. Communication is clearly a strength and the resources to help the Apprentices prepare for EPA are very good. I feel our Apprentices have had the best experience that could be sourced from an assessment provider. The post assessment feedback for us as a training
provider has also been really useful in making sure our programme is robust and gives our candidates the best possible outcome.

Education & Apprenticeship Manager, Azzurri Group

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.
