End-Point Assessment Partnership



In an exciting development, NFCC is now partnering with Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service to deliver a newly enhanced end-point assessment service for fire and rescue services.

Under the EPA Partnership, Cornwall FRS will continue to offer end-point assessments for the operational firefighter apprenticeship and retain their registration with the Education and Skills Funding Agency. The Partnership offers a new opportunity to grow the current provision and supply services to all fire and rescue services who wish to carry out end-point assessment.

As part of our partnership arrangements, NFCC will be working with Cornwall FRS to develop end-point assessments for other fire-specific apprenticeships including, business fire safety advisor, community safety advisor, fire safety inspector and emergency service contact handling.

Why do we need an EPA Partnership?


Approximately 3,000 staff are expected to be on fire specific apprenticeships, with around one third looking for end-point assessment in the next 12 months. The EPA Partnership can help fire and rescue services to meet their own end-point assessment needs. 

If you are looking for an apprenticeships end-point assessment provider, please contact Jimmy Clitheroe.
