Join with peers for the first series of our EPAO Quality Clinics to support you in delivering excellence in EPA.

These quality clinics are comprised of expert masterclasses and Q&A sessions to support those EPAOs that have recently gained Ofqual recognition and those that are in the process of completing the transition to Ofqual accreditation in time for the deadline of 1st July.

These highly interactive sessions, hosted by Charlotte Bosworth, FAB Director and Managing Director of Innovate Awarding will bring together those end point assessment organisations that are going through transition to Ofqual accreditation in a supportive manner, no question is too daft and you can even ask questions anonymously if you prefer.
