External quality assurance

The end point assessment of all apprenticeships must be externally quality assured to ensure that they are meeting consistent outcomes.

For the hospitality, retail and travel end point assessment, there is an employer-led process which is managed on behalf of industry apprenticeship boards by People 1st.

People 1st is currently designing the external quality assurance (EQA) process in consultation with assessment organisations. You can view our latest update, including a draft of the EQA process in this presentation

The next update on the external quality assurance process will be via webinar on 1 March 2017.
