CILEx End-Point Assessment Service (EPA)
CILEx is the only Independent End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) approved by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to deliver EPA for the Paralegal and Chartered Legal Executive apprenticeships.
As your EPAO, CILEx will not only design, develop and deliver quality robust assessments, which fit with the specific needs of the legal sector, but can also support your training and delivery of the On-Programme learning.
Paralegal and Chartered Legal Executive End-Point Assessments are structured as follows:
Registering End-Point Assessments for Legal Apprenticeships
End-Point Assessments must meet the Apprenticeship Standards set by employer groups. CILEx is aware that there are a wide range of differing Paralegal roles. In order for assessments to be adequately matched to an apprentice’s role, it is important for CILEx to receive information early. By registering Apprentices with CILEx when an Apprenticeship commences, we can work with you and the employer to ensure that:
• Apprentices have met the necessary gateway requirements for their EPA.
• The appropriate type of assessment in relation to the relevant standards are set.
• Assessment resources and facilities are in place at the right time.

End-Point Assessment Fees
We have a transparent pricing structure for our EPA service. For a full breakdown of the EPA fees contact please contact Martin Petch, Business Development Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 07833 496118.
A registration fee will be payable at the start of the Apprenticeship to register Apprentices. The remaining balance of the EPA fee will then be payable to reserve dates for an Apprentice’s end-Point Assessment.
Paralegal Apprentices who join as members of CILEx will receive a discount on the standard fee for End-Point Assessment as membership results in reduced administrative costs.
