The Innovate Awarding story

Innovate Awarding was established as part of the Lifetime Group in 2009 and became a regulated Awarding Organisation in 2010.

Our purpose has always been focused on developing and delivering high quality Qualifications and assessments to allow individuals to reach their potential and gain the right skills to start a career, or to develop and progress in a current job role. 


All our Qualifications and assessments are designed with Employers so we can ensure our Qualifications and End-Point Assessments are high quality and fit for purpose.

What we do

We provide End-Point Assessment services for apprenticeship Standards, and vocational Qualifications for work-based learning and transitioning to work, across 15 sectors and we're growing.


We are regulated by Ofqual and listed on the government’s ESFA register of apprentice Assessment Organisations. Reputation is of the utmost importance to us, whether this is from those that regulate us, those that compete against us, the employers and providers we work with, or the learners and apprentices we serve.


Our commitment to delivering EPA in an efficient client-friendly way has reached a new level with the development of our epaPRO system. This integrated platform can streamline the entire EPA process from registration to certification and is widely regarded as industry leading.


Our clients are our partners for life. They work with us not only because of the quality of our End-Point Assessments and Qualifications, our commitment to compliance or our personalised service - but because of our people. The expertise and support of our people are what make the difference in delivering true value.
