NOCN need a minimum of four weeks’ notice from the point of you submitting the EPA request to the date requested. NOCN will work to ensure that we can fulfil your booking as quickly as possible, but four weeks is the minimum amount of time we need.
Our assessors are all friendly industry professionals, but they are undertaking the role of an examiner. They will not offer any advice or feedback during the assessments. Think driving test examiner and the role of an End Point Assessor is very similar.
NOCN provide an invigilation guide which is available to download from the Useful Information and Resources page within the Help and Support section of the website.
NOCN approach to End Point Assessment costing is flexible, based on the delivery model of the Training Provider and employer. NOCN charges a small registration fee at the outset to cover administration and setup, which enables on-going support and training for the Training Provider and employer. You can change the name and details of the apprentice at any point up to the submission at Gateway. You don’t lose the slot if the apprentice is no longer on the programme.
Our EPA is subject to restrictions, some allow for mock assessments and some do not. NOCN will be happy to provide you with the mock information for each of your cohorts. Please contact us via email@example.com
This is dependant upon each EPA standard and assessment plan. The training provider would need to arrange for suitable premises or facilities for practical assessment, but four weeks is the minimum amount of time we need.
Our Standard Service Level Agreement (SLA) is 7 working days from the final element of the EPA. However, there may be instances where we need to keep the EPA outcome in moderation until NOCN are satisfied the outcomes meet the requirements of the assessment plan and apprenticeship standard.
All certificates are sent directly to the employer of the Apprentice. The Education Skills Funding Agency is the issuing agency for the Apprenticeship certificate, NOCN will issue a results notification to the nominated contact on the apprentice’s record. This result can then be viewed via the Rubric system
Booking is confirmed with the End Point Assessor and confirmed with the provider 8 working days from submission.
This is sent directly from the ESFA and takes approximately 4-6 weeks.
This is dependent on the apprenticeship standard; however, the learner may need to go back into learning for a period before a resit can take place.
NOCN require the training provider to confirm any reasonable adjustments when booking apprentices on Rubric. NOCN will make contact should they require any further information.
This will depend on who has been set up with Rubric access, we suggest to Training Providers that they use a generic email address if there are different people accessing Rubric to input apprentices.
