Sets out the minimum requirements to be included in a recognised English apprenticeship framework.
The Specification of Apprenticeship Standards for England (SASE) sets out the minimum requirements to be included in a recognised English apprenticeship framework.
Compliance with the SASE is a statutory requirement of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning (ASCL) Act. It covers intermediate level, advanced level, and higher apprenticeship frameworks.
There are 3 publications:
- the Specification: sets out the minimum requirements to include in a recognised English apprenticeship framework
- the Information Requirement: sets out the non-statutory requirements for supporting information on equality and diversity, entry conditions and progression routes to be included in an annex to a recognised English apprenticeship framework
- Guidance: explains the SASE requirements for framework developers, and English issuing authorities who must consult the guidance when deciding whether a framework submission complies with the SASE
