EHAP \ ELITE HOSPITALITY
All our EPA’s have been trained and qualified by our sister company Umbrella Training Ltd who are the apprenticeship experts for hospitality and with the highest achievement rates.
EHAP has been created to support our employer business partners in securing a solid ROI with their apprenticeship levy by allowing their heads of departments and managers to train and qualify as end point assessors.
“ By having a qualified EPA within our business that understands the whole apprenticeship arena gives us the inside knowledge to support our own apprentices allowing confidence for that all important pass or distinction to take place when they do enter the gateway. Also knowing that EHAP has industry experts who have current expertise from the sector available for this process gives me some reassurance that I am getting the best for my apprentices and who will make fair decisions. ”

All apprentices must undertake an independent end-point assessment which is a synoptic assessment of the knowledge, skills and behaviours that have been learnt throughout the apprenticeship. The purpose of the assessment is to make sure the apprentice meets the standard set by employers and are fully competent in the occupation.
Assessment is taken by apprentices at the very end of the on-programme phase of training when their employer (and in some cases their training provider) is satisfied that they have met the “gateway” criteria to undertake the assessment. End-point-assessments are graded and an apprenticeship certificate is only awarded after end-point assessment is successfully completed.
All our End-Point Assessors are bookable through our administration service and are available at short notice if required.
