Following the Government introduction of a further national lockdown in England from 5 January 2021, we are currently looking at the implications for our customers and their apprentices. We will be working with the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, the ESFA, Ofqual and other regulators on the latest guidance and will share information on our website and via social media.

Please be assured that we are committed to support you in these difficult times and will endeavour to maintain EPA services wherever possible and any assistance required throughout. We are in the process of making urgent direct contact with our customers, regarding each and every organisation’s plans over the next few weeks, which will enable us to put contingency plans in place.

The Institute of Apprenticeships and Technical Education have released confirmation that all agreed apprenticeship flexibilities have now been extended until the end of August 2021. See the full guidance here.

We will be sure to keep you updated on progress of this situation as we receive it, however in the meantime,  please don’t hesitate in contacting our team today, for any queries you may have, or support required.
