About us

The EPAO of choice

Progress Minded is a commercial, flexible and client focused end-point assessment organisation. We assess a broad range of standards mainly across digital and business sectors.

We work with a team of highly qualified industry experts to conduct independent assessments. Through the life of the programme our personalised service supports all parties: apprentice, training provider and employer. This is perhaps best demonstrated by the range of relevant synoptic project options, we’e prepared to commit that with reasonable notice, no apprentice will be set a project which isn’t a close fit with his or her job role.

This is the first stage in our building a broader portfolio and we’re always keen to hear from trailblazer groups and employers which might need EPAO support for standards which we don’t yet offer.

We are part of The JGA Group, a near 30 year established national training and apprenticeship provider and from which we draw our culture, ethics, quality and compliance expertise.

Our values

Our values underpin our culture and how we interact with apprentices, clients and assessors.

Our values are:

  • Positivity
  • Empathy
  • Adaptability
  • Transparency

Our approach

We’re commercial, flexible and client focused.

We provide extensive guidance and support to help all parties understand the expectations, requirements and processes for end-point assessment (EPA).

For standards with Synoptic Projects, we create a variety of projects to choose from so that the employer and apprentice can select a project that reflects their sector and job role.

We pride ourselves on providing a high quality service and ensuring regular communication with all parties. This is underpinned by the nearly 30 years experience of our parent company, The JGA Group.

We use ACE 360, an industry standard online system which links together all of the parties to EPA.

We serve a broad range of employers and training providers and are flexible and adaptable in our approach. This enables us to offer a bespoke EPA customer experience.

Progress Minded will request the certificate from Education and Skills Funding Agency and send it to the apprentice’s employer.
