EPA PRICING & CANCELLATION

About Us

ETC Awards Limited (Trading as ETA) is an end-point assessment organisation (EPAO), regulated by OFQUAL and listed on the Apprenticeship Provider and Assessment Register (APAR).

We are approved to assess specific standards by OFQUAL, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, and the Education and Skills Funding Agency and exist in separation to our Awarding Organisation.

As a registered End Point Assessment organisation, ETA is responsible for ensuring that End Point Assessments are valid, reliable, comparable, manageable and minimise bias.

Our End Point Assessments guide your apprentices through a streamlined, high quality assessment process. Innovative, up to date assessment plans work in collaboration with training providers, colleges and employers alike to deliver a rigorously quality assured outcome.

Fees

A full list of ETA End Point Assessment Fees can be found on our Fees list at the end of this document. If alternative pricing has been agreed with a customer e.g., volume and scale- based discounts, this will be specified within individual Variations to ETC Awards Ltd End Point Assessment Terms & Conditions with each customer (held on our Quartz platform).

Gateway fees are non-refundable. All fees are subject to review on an annual basis.

 

Charging Points

A gateway application prior to the EPA date being agreed will trigger the first payment of the ‘Gateway application fee’.

The balance of the EPA payment will become payable when the first EPA activity takes place.

Note that ETC Awards Ltd does not charge the customer for learner registrations. ETC Awards Ltd will issue invoices to the customer as follows:

At gateway: 20% of the EPA price
When the first EPA activity takes place: 80% of the EPA price
End Point Assessment Cancellation

If EPA is cancelled or re-scheduled within 7 working days of the first EPA event, we will charge 40% of the full EPA Fee. If the 20% gateway payment has been processed, then a further 20% of the total cost of the EPA will be invoiced.

 Once gateway has been approved and the gateway payment has been made if the EPA is then cancelled, then the gateway payment will be non-refundable.

 We recognise that there may be exceptional circumstances that prevent the EPA from taking place at the agreed time/date, in these situations we will provide reasonable consideration to each case.

 

Resit/Retake Fees

Resit/retake fees for EPA’s will be invoiced upon booking, once it is agreed by the training provider, employer and apprentice. Resit/Retake fees are also non-refundable.

A full list of ETA End Point Assessment Resit costs can be found on our Fees list at the end of this document.
