British Marine is delighted to announce that following its recent meeting with The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) it has been successful in its application for recognition relating to apprenticeship End Point Assessments (EPA), which will see it being added to the End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) register.

Ofqual, which regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England, has confirmed that British Marine has met the necessary requirements to deliver EPA for the following Standards:

  • Marina & Boatyard Operative, Level 2 
  • Boatbuilder, Level 3 
  • Marine Engineer, Level 3

“Apprenticeships are a popular route for developing talent in the marine sector, so it is vital that we are able to provide the EPA service, allowing us to certify apprentices, who are crucial to building and strengthening the future workforce of the sector,” commented Lesley Robinson, CEO, British Marine.

As specialists in the marine sector and with a team of assessors from across the industry, British Marine is well versed in the challenges businesses may face and can provide tailored support to help organisations navigate their way through the EPA journey. 

Head of Training at British Marine, Manj Mahey commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank employers, training providers and colleges for their continued support throughout this process and we look forward to supporting them with EPAs in the coming months and years.”

The team continues to work closely with apprenticeship trailblazer groups to create and maintain marine apprenticeship standards as part of its commitment to ensure high quality marine apprenticeships are available to all employers.
