Competence & Assessment

Competence Management and Assessment Services
NSAN delivers End Point Assessment (EPA) for apprenticeship standards used in the nuclear industry.  Recent audits from the Institute for Apprenticeships have demonstrated that the systems we have put in place, and the management of our approved EPA Organisation, provide the apprentices we are serving with an excellent assessment experience.  Responding to demand from NSAN employer members, over the coming years we aim to expand delivery into new job roles relevant to our sector. 

The NS4P (NSAN Training and Competence Management platform) is also undergoing a refresh for the 2020s, and it remains an intrinsic part of the membership offer.  We are adding to its functionality by bringing in bolt on services that our members say they would like, but which are not currently on offer.     

End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO):


  • Deliver EPA for all Nuclear Standards to Level 5: including Nuclear Health Physics, Nuclear Operations and Nuclear Technician.
  • Develop and deliver End Point Assessment for all other standards as directed by the membership.

Competence Assessment Solutions:

  • Continue to develop and deliver competence assessment solutions to support and evidence workforce capability.


  • Continue to develop and deliver the NS4P (Skills Assured), providing a first-class competence assessment and management tool to our members.
  • Support customers to integrate best practice competence assessment and management frameworks and systems within their business; providing access to a standardised competence framework developed to aid mobility, flexibility and transferability of their workforce in the multiple sectors and disciplines; adopting and aligning their processes to professional standards.
