DfE, End-Point-Assessment, Reasonable Adjustments and You.

Posted on September 18th, 2019

What does the new guidance from the DfE for End-Point Assessment Organisations (EPAO’s) regarding reasonable adjustments mean? And what’s its potential impact on employers, training providers and EPAO’s? It should mean nothing. This is not new legislation. Instead it is helpful guidance on how to implement the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. Organisations – employers, training providers and EPAO’s – should already have in place processes to allow for adjustments in the end-point assessment (EPA) of apprentices with a disability or a physical or mental health condition which may place them at a disadvantage.

(But the reality is that many of the organisations we speak to don’t understand how to put strong processes in place.)

We advise them that being able to properly identify and assess individual needs is key to learner success. With Cognassist’s data-driven cognitive assessment learning providers are able to put a programme of support in place that improves learner outcomes right up to EPA.

We are also proud to show them that the latest version of our cognitive assessment report includes detailed guidance on reasonable adjustments and how to make them.

Having this information at the start of the learner journey means that employers, training providers and assessors each have the maximum time to ensure all reasonable efforts are made to give the learner a fair chance.

A better outcome for the learner, regardless of need.
