2023 Finalists for EPAO Industry Awards


AIM Assessment has again been shortlisted for ‘Specialist Sector EPAO of the Year Award’ by  the Federation of Awarding Bodies.

The EPA Awards celebrates the achievements of end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs) in the past year and AIM Assessment has been shortlisted for their work in the Creative Sector.

“We are very excited to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. We were a finalist last year so we’re really hoping that the advances we’ve made this year will be recognised.” Said Debbie Tuisawau, EPA Director at AIM Qualifications and Assessment Group.

“There are two key things that make us really stand out: The first is our determination to put the apprentice at the heart of everything we do. The second is the close relationship we build with employers, guiding them through the entire apprenticeship. I’m really proud of our team and the work they do within this challenging sector” said Debbie.

The Federation’s chief executive, Tom Bewick, said: 
“These annual industry awards recognise extraordinary excellence in the end-point assessment of apprentices. The EPA market has matured significantly since 2017. Thanks to reforms which FAB called for in external quality assurance (EQA), we are now at the end of a transition period where the majority of EPAOs operate in a statutory-led regulated environment.  Changes that pave the way for greater public confidence in the apprenticeship system. 

“These awards represent the sector’s commitment to training quality by ensuring every apprentice is assessed against workplace proficiency and competence, regardless of the occupation or where the apprentice or employer in England is based. 
I’m delighted to see such a strong field of finalists making the cut this year, as we prepare for the industry’s flagship conference at Warwick in May 2023.”

The awards will take place during the EPA 2023 Conference, Awards and Exhibition on the 18th of May at Warwick Conferences.
