A retake requires completion of the full EPA (both assessments again) following a period of further learning and development. Retakes are charged at full EPA cost.
Retakes will be charged to the employer and can therefore only be taken at the employer’s discretion, following consultation with the apprentice and their training provider. They can only be taken after the CIPD and the training provider have agreed a timeline for the retake and the CIPD is in receipt of written agreement from the employer to cover the cost.
|Before six weeks of assessment date||No charge|
|Within six weeks of assessment date||25% charge of the EPA cost|
|Within 21 days of assessment date||50% charge of the EPA cost|
All End Point Assessments (EPAs) that the CIPD offer have a range of possible grading outcomes. See how the score and grade is awarded.
Resits and retakes are available to apprentices with their employers’ authorisation, with additional costs.
