EPA Costs - Per Apprentice
To assist apprentices, employers and training providers, CILEX has set out the fee payable for the End-Point Assessment.
The fee is the sum of all mandatory fees that must be paid for the End-Point Assessment and is based on apprentices passing the assessments at the first attempt. If a further attempt is needed, an additional fee is payable. The table below shows the fees relating to the End-Point Assessment as of 1 January 2022.
