The apprenticeship reforms happening right now will affect everyone engaged in apprenticeship delivery.
There are more apprenticeships on offer than ever – in different job roles and at different qualification levels – some at university degree and Masters level.
The new apprenticeship standards have been written by employers for their industry. These detail the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to carry out a job role. At the end of the programme the apprentice’s progress will be independently assessed.
- Qualification changes
- Frameworks move to Standards
- Introduction of Degree and Masters Level Standards
- End Point Assessment to ensure independent verification of the standard
- Funding and payment options
- Digital Accounts to handle Levy payments
20% of the working hours needs to be spent on Off the Job Training. This can include mentoring, work shadowing, study and on-line learning. Working with a training provider that can offer a variety of learning styles enables the apprenticeship programme to meet both employee and employers needs.
