Details

This document is relevant to:

  • employers wanting to recruit an apprentice
  • training organisations working with employers to make the apprenticeships available

The approved standard outlines the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of the apprentice and the job they will need to be able to do by the time they have completed their apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship standard is only available for delivery when both the standard and assessment plan is approved and a funding band (core government contribution) has been assigned to the standard.

Under our reforms, employer-designed standards will replace frameworks over the course of this parliament.
