To make an enquiry about an End-point Assessment result you will need to email Please ensure that you include all the requested information and any other information that may be relevant to your enquiry.

Receiving the apprenticeship certificate

The ESFA and IFA issue apprenticeship certificates after we’ve sent the EPA results to the ESFA and managed any queries they have. They send the certificate directly to the employer. We cannot guarantee the ESFA’s timelines for this.

We also issue our own branded EPA statement of achievement which includes a breakdown of results and grades by assessment event.
