The new Apprenticeship Standards?
These Standards have been developed by a number of groups of employers and the early pilots were called ‘Trailblazers’. All of the existing Frameworks will be replaced by new Standards by 2020, ensuring better delivery across the UK.
What is different about the new Standards?
They are being developed by employers, rather than the government, meaning that the training that will be delivered will be higher quality and that more relevant skills will be taught throughout industries. The standards are being designed to ensure successful development of all areas within Apprenticeships. Gearing Apprentices towards achieving the specific skills for the company that they work for means that once they have completed their course, they will be a fully competent and productive employee.
