Explains how to develop new apprenticeships in England, from bidding to develop a standard to preparing for the standard to be used.
Groups of employers (trailblazers) have been leading the way in carrying out the changes to apprenticeships. They have been working together to design apprenticeship standards and assessment approaches to make them world class.
The latest guidance sets out the end to end process and policy on:
- applying to develop a standard
- drafting the standard and assessment plan
- preparing for the standard to be used
The guidance also contains templates to help employer groups, as well as details of the timing and process for the next round of submission of bids, draft standards and draft assessment plans for approval.
Please see paragraphs 159 to 162 of the guidance to determine whether you need to complete the template at annex 9 (see excel document).
