Telling your apprenticeship story successfully
SDN loves to help high-quality organisations tell their apprenticeship story successfully
On 1st August 2023, the government’s end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) register was merged with the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). The new combined register is called the Apprenticeship Provider and Assessment Register (APAR).
It’s a high stakes and stringent process. If you’re unsuccessful you will not be allowed to reapply for another 12 months.
We know how important this is to get right.
Whether or not you’ve received your invitation, we’d encourage you to start preparing your application now.
How SDN’s APAR Application Service works:
SDN can review or help you write your APAR application:
Review / feedback on your application responses
Written hints and tips before you start writing
Review all your responses, policies / documents and provide written feedback for improvements before submission
Full application – preparation and drafting
Get to know you and review your previous application
Draft all written responses – and review / draft bespoke policies and procedures as necessary – ready for you to review
Highlight areas for improvement in your delivery
Hands-on support with the Digital Service and final peer review by SDN team
If you’d value our full support, we’d recommend getting in contact straight away. We can work with you to develop the majority of your responses in advance and then finalise and submit your application once you’ve received your invitation from the ESFA. This will help take a lot of the stress away from you and make the process an easier one.
What our clients say:
Really useful feedback on my RoATP refresh, so very helpful and made me feel much more confident in our application. Excellent service, would definitely use again.
I am very glad we decided to work with you on our RoATP application. This is such a business critical process and one that needed an independent, experienced, critical friend and adviser in order to make the best possible application.
