If we provide integrated apprenticeships meaning that we deliver the EPA, do we need to be on the register of EPA organisations to do so? I would think not because we’re not an independent body to ourselves?

The EPA is therefore assessed solely by the Higher Education Institution (HEI) awarding the degree. In its role as an Apprentice Assessment Organization (AAO), the HEI must be approved to offer this EPA and be included on the Register of Apprentice Assessment Organizations (RoAAO)
