ICE is a registered End-point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for five apprenticeship standards in England.
End-point Assessments (EPAs) will take place in various locations, which will incur the centre-based fee below. However, ICE recognises that some organisations may wish for EPAs to be held at a time and place of their choosing. If possible, ICE will organise bespoke EPAs, which will incur the bespoke EPA fee below.
ICE will invoice the learning provider for the relevant fee on receipt of an application for an End-point Assessment (EPA). The EPA will not take place until payment has been received.
In the event of a re-sit the employer will be responsible for payment of the fee, as published in the table above. However, ICE will request the money directly from the learning provider. It is the responsibility of the learning provider to claim this back from the employer.
Those who pass their EPA and wish to become professionally qualified members of ICE will also need to pay the additional membership subscription and Engineering Council entrance fees.
If you have any questions regarding the EPA fees, please email [email protected].
