CILIP Pathways

CILIP Pathways provides quality assessment services for apprenticeships. We are the end point assessment organisation (EPAO) for the Level 3 Library, Information and Archives Services Assistant apprenticeship Standard.

As part of the CILIP family of services, we have been involved in the development of this apprenticeship Standard from day one and passionately believe in the importance of quality, diverse routes into the library, information and knowledge profession to deliver excellent services both now and in the future. CILIP has a well-established background in course accreditation and assessment services for individuals. That expertise and drive has been used to create a new assessment service for the Standard called CILIP Pathways.

CILIP Pathways (company number 12497166) is a subsidiary trading arm of CILIP (Registered charity number 313014). CILIP Pathways is governed by a majority independent board of directors, staffed by experts in the library, information and knowledge sector and has a team of qualified independent assessors

We are busy creating resources and guidance to provide expert assessment services for the Standard. Please register your interest here to receive updates. You can get in touch with the CILIP Pathways team directly by emailing
