Details

The government expects to move from apprenticeship frameworks to standards over the course of the parliament.

The apprenticeship framework delivery list contains all the apprenticeships frameworks available as well as the withdrawal date for all the frameworks we have withdrawn.

We are aware that this is a time of significant change for the sector and on that basis we will not withdraw any further frameworks until 2020. By 2020 we expect that employers and providers will have completed the transition, and that all starts will be on standards, so all frameworks will be withdrawn to new starts at that point.

This change will not affect those apprentices currently completing their apprenticeship on these frameworks.
