What did you do to prepare for EPA?
Revise, practice and gaining confidence. By using the toolkit, it allowed me to understand what I needed to do to achieve my target grade.
What were your feelings prior to any assessments taking place, compared to after the event?
I was very nervous before, but believe that is normal. Post EPA is a great feeling and a real sense of achievement!
How would you describe your EPA experience with your assessor and 1st for EPA in general?
The assessors were great. They made me feel super comfortable and were there to answer any questions I had. The same goes for the rest of the 1st for EPA team- a huge help!
Would you recommend 1st for EPA to a friend?
Definitely! It’s been a great experience and test, one I am proud of completing and achieving.
Do you have any tips for someone going through the EPA process?
Just practice until you feel confident. Practice with colleagues, family, friends. Whoever is willing to listen! All feedback is great feedback after all.
Any other comments you would like to share about your experience?
A rewarding, challenging, yet fun course!
What have you done since completing your apprenticeship?
I’ve now received a promotion within my current role at Everymessage, working as a digital marketing executive!
