About Us

Our EPA’s are fully committed to the hospitality sector and their full time roles and all have committed time to work with apprentices through EHAP. Our business partners have stated:

“ 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.



The end point assessment of all apprenticeships must be externally quality assured to ensure that they are valid, consistent and reliable across apprenticeship assessment organisations (AAOs). For the hospitality industry the End Point assessment, there is an employer-led process which is managed on behalf of industry apprenticeship boards by People 1st.


It is up to the employer to choose their apprenticeship assessment organisation (AAO) and they do not have to opt for the AAO recommended by their training provider. Approved assessment organisations for the hospitality, retail, travel, aviation and bus, coach and heavy vehicle sectors can be found on the government's website: www.gov.uk
