Our work in action
The Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service is proud to have been the first end point assessment organisation to have achievers on the new Trailblazer Standards and since then we have celebrated over 1500 apprentices passing end-point assessment.
What our clients say
UK Power Networks
“As a member of Energy & Utility Skills, UK Power Networks has been very closely involved in the development of Trailblazer Apprenticeships which has had over 150 Power Network apprentices qualified under the scheme to date.
It has been very informative working with the other member companies during trailblazer scheme development giving us confidence that all companies have the same exacting high standards of safety and operational discipline.
UK Power Networks has been very satisfied with the way that the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service have ensured that all steps of the end point assessment process have been satisfactorily completed and apprentices’ certificates appropriately awarded.”
“Working with the EUIAS has been a breath of fresh air, we now have an assessment body that understands our working environment. It’s an organisation that listens to the voice of the employer and is able to articulate and interpret the latest guidance in a way that enables us, together with our apprentices, to achieve first rate apprenticeship achievements.”
Bryan Ashford, New Talent Manager
“I have watched the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service develop from concept to reality, supporting large numbers of talented apprentices of all ages. It is a constant delight to meet the dedicated individuals who have worked so hard to complete their apprenticeships and pass a rigorous end point assessment. I wish them all success in building on their apprenticeships as the basis for long and rewarding careers.”
Lord Aberdare, Vice Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Apprenticeships
“We are really pleased to have our first group of Trailblazer apprentices graduate. With the skills shortage in our industry the apprentice programme is key to supporting our manpower strategy. Many thanks to the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service for guiding us through the process.”
John Cowell, Resource and Development Manager
“Our intention as a company was to raise the bar for our apprentices and new entrants into the sector and the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service rose to this challenge, creating a very thorough and high quality end point assessment process that not only challenges the apprentices but also gives us the confidence as an employer that once through the process they are ready to fulfill the requirements of their role. At United Utilities we had the first apprentices in the sector to gain a distinction. None of this would have been possible without the support and commitment of the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service.”
Phil White, Head of Learning and Development
