IMI delivers remote apprentice EPA under lockdown

Published:  05 May, 2020

The IMI recently delivered the first end point assessment (EPA) in the sector using remote technology, and the organisation now intends to roll out the process for its other Apprenticeship Standards where practical.

Working with industry training business the Calibre Group, the IMI remotely delivered the EPA for its Motor Finance Apprenticeship Standard.  Mark Armitage, Head of Membership Products and Services at the IMI commented: The IMI had been planning to implement the remote solution for EPA activities before the Coronavirus pandemic. It was, therefore, easily able to implement the EPA with the Calibre Group earlier this month, avoiding the risk of the apprentice having the completion of his apprenticeship delayed for several months.”

 “With the support of the regulator,” added Mark, it has been exciting to see how effectively we can deliver end point assessment during this time of vital social distancing.”

Sabina Hegarty, Managing Director, Calibre Group concluded: “Long before COVID-19 took over our lives, the IMI had already been working hard to improve its digital offering across its range of activities. This has been brilliant for us as a training provider as it aligned well with our own digital approach to training and managing of processes.”
