Statement from QFI
We regret to inform you of the intended closure of QFI (Qualifications for Industry) as an End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO). We have informed Ofqual of our intention and our Withdrawal Plan has been submitted to them. In an effort to avoid disadvantaging apprentices we will continue to assess apprentices that are currently going through EPA (including any fails that require re-sits) or at gateway/ ready for EPA where possible, particularly for standards where QFI is the sole EPAO.
Additionally, for standards where QFI is the sole EPAO, IfATE and DfE will be working together to secure another EPAO to enter the market, where this is not possible, IfATE have committed to completing a special dispensation for the learner to ensure they are able to complete their EPA. We are committed to minimal disruption as best we can and will be scheduling remote meetings with Training Providers to discuss the status of apprentices registered with us. We appreciate your understanding and ongoing support during this challenging time. Meanwhile should you have any questions or need further information, please contact us email@example.com
