ICA Independent End-Point Assessment Service

ICA’s mission is to inspire, educate and enable the global community of compliance specialists to perform to the highest standards of professional practice and conduct.

To further support this we have been working with leading employers to develop new apprenticeship standards and assessment in the areas of compliance and risk.

Compliance Apprenticeship standards

Apprenticeship Standards have been designed to meet the needs of employers, learners and ATPs. They aim to:

  • Give employers control in designing apprenticeships
  • Increase the flexibility of delivery
  • Simplify the funding system
  • Increase the effectiveness of training

ICA offer EPA for the following apprenticeship standards:
