EPA Pro

Plan for a smooth apprenticeship delivery with our online administration platform EPA Pro

EPA Pro is our online apprenticeship administration platform to support and streamline all stages of your on-programme and EPA delivery.

From apprentice registration to uploading assessment evidence and monitoring progress, EPA Pro makes your apprenticeship delivery easier at each stage.

Key features and benefits of EPA Pro include:

  • EPA Pro dashboard which provides a snapshot of newly enrolled apprentices, completed gateways, new results, and certificates.
  • A calendar populated with EPA activities and events for your centre.
  • Notifications of your apprentices' progress, including planned assessments, completed assessments and results.
  • Access to support resources for all stages of the apprenticeship journey, including checklists, exemplar materials and mock tests.

Get started with EPA Pro

Watch our video which guides you through the EPA Pro platform features and benefits, such as navigating the dashboard, setting up your profile, registering apprentices and accessing support resources. You can also download the Getting started with EPA Pro slides.

EPA Pro benefits providers, employers, and apprentices by enabling you to share information, track progress, view planned activity and access support materials. Customers approved to deliver the on-programme standards or the EPA-only service will be given access to EPA Pro.

The primary provider user will have full access to EPA Pro with the added permission to create EPA Pro accounts for centre staff users, apprentices, and employers.

For new customers, the primary provider user will be sent an email from City & Guilds with information on how to log into EPA Pro.

Centre staff users will also have access to all EPA Pro features except for the option to create additional user accounts.

You can help your apprentices keep track of their performance and upcoming assessments by giving them access to EPA Pro. They will have access to a simplified version of the platform which enables them to see:

  • Their individual calendar of EPA activity and events
  • Their individual notifications
  • Support materials tailored to their standard
  • A personal profile area to review their progress throughout their EPA

Apprentices can be given access to EPA Pro by their provider at registration.

Providers are able to give employers access to EPA Pro to help them track progress. This can support apprenticeship delivery by giving employers an overview of how their apprentice is progressing and to manage key milestones.

Employers will have access to a simplified version of the platform, which is managed at the discretion of the provider.
