SFJ Awards shortlisted for EPA 2023 Award

SFJ Awards, part of The Workforce Development Trust, is a finalist for the ‘Specialist Sector Based EPAO of the Year’ award at the EPA Awards 2023. The awards recognise the achievements of End-Point Assessment Organisations from across the United Kingdom. The Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) announced the finalists, which included SFJ Awards.

SFJ Awards has been shortlisted for this award due to our commitment to providing high-quality end-point assessments that meet the needs of our clients and apprentices. Our team works tirelessly to ensure that we are at the forefront of our industry, and we are proud to be recognised for our efforts.

SFJ Awards believe that this nomination is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are excited to see what the future holds. We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional service to our clients and learners, and we are honoured to be considered for this prestigious award.

“We offer our clients the personal touch”

Kit Salt, Head of End-Point Assessment at SFJ Awards, said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be finalists for the ‘Specialist Sector Based EPAO of the Year’ Award. EPAO’s are pivotal in helping to support and develop skilled, capable workforces. At SFJ Awards our team are second to none, and I am so proud of each and every one of them. We offer our clients the personal touch, and on hand whenever we are needed. We constantly strive for excellence in all areas, supporting apprentices to achieve their full potential. It is a great honour to be a finalist alongside some of the leading lights of the awarding sector. We are proud to have been considered, and even more so to have made the shortlist, especially in such a talented and competitive field of entries.”

Recognising “extraordinary excellence”

The Federation’s Chief Executive, Tom Bewick, said:

“These annual industry awards recognise extraordinary excellence in the end-point assessment of apprentices.
The EPA market has matured significantly since 2017. Thanks to reforms which FAB called for in external quality assurance (EQA), we are now at the end of a transition period where the majority of EPAOs operate in a statutory-led regulated environment.
Changes that pave the way for greater public confidence in the apprenticeship system.

These awards represent the sector’s commitment to training quality by ensuring every apprentice is assessed against workplace proficiency and competence, regardless of the occupation or where the apprentice or employer in England is based.
I’m delighted to see such a strong field of finalists making the cut this year, as we prepare for the industry’s flagship conference at Warwick on 18th May 2023 – #EPA2023.”
