From working with Innovate, I find that the team are extremely valued of their brand and extremely supportive with their customers.

 

Within the different sectors we have been able to submit a large portfolio of learners through Innovate, who are achieving excellent results, at least 62% of those learners have achieved a distinction.

 

We have established an excellent rapport with Innovate, through regular meetings, looking at how support can be given to each other to ensure our learners are at the heart of everything we do.

Since using their end-point assessment service from the start of 2020, our experience of working with Innovate Awarding has been excellent. The booking process is straight forward, easy to use and, above all else, communication is of a high standard. They responded quickly when we needed their guidance and support whether that was by email or telephone.

 

Innovate involve the learner in communications after gateway and the assessors have been extremely supportive to both tutors and apprentices throughout the EPA process. We had one situation where an apprentice was nervous about his assessments and the assessor rang him before the EPA date to talk to him and put him at ease. I felt this was a nice touch that helped the apprentice to feel more comfortable in the run up to his assessments and ultimately, he achieved a distinction. I would not hesitate to recommend Innovate Awarding to others.
