EUIAS Approved to Deliver End-point Assessment on a 10th Apprenticeship Standard

The Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service (EUIAS) has received approval to deliver end-point assessment on the Electrical Power Network Engineer Level 4 Standard.

The news, recently announced by the Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations, takes the number of apprenticeship standards the EUIAS is approved to provide end-point assessment for to ten. It also means the EUIAS has been approved to deliver on every standard it has applied to.

The Electrical Power Network Engineer is one of the ‘Trailblazer’ standards in England that Energy & Utility Skills has developed in partnership with sector employers. These are safety critical, high quality technical apprenticeships within niche specialist areas that are essential to support the national infrastructure. Apprenticeships provide a vital supply of talent to help address the energy and utilities sector’s recruitment challenges.

“We are delighted to have been approved to deliver end-point assessment on yet another standard,” said the EUIAS’ Associate Director Dr Jacqueline Hall. “This is testament to the strong working relationships we have built with a variety of employers across the power industry in the UK.

“The EUIAS has a mandate to fulfil as our sector is strategically important to the UK economy, so this is not a time for us to rest on our laurels. We will continue to develop our end-point assessment to ensure it remains relevant and fit for the sector.”

At the time of writing, the number of apprentices that have completed end-point assessment with the EUIAS stands at 292, and is expected to reach 300 within days.

End-point assessment allows apprentices to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and behaviours, so that they can complete their apprenticeship and access exciting career opportunities while playing an integral part in the future of the UK’s energy sector.
