Apprenticeship Standards and Frameworks
These standards outline the minimum requirements needed to complete an apprenticeship and cover a range of job roles and levels. The frameworks differ for training providers based in England, Scotland and Wales.
In England, from 2017, a new Apprenticeship system is being gradually phased in and replacing the previous arrangements. The new standards are based on employers collaborating across the sector to define the capabilities an apprentice will have at the end of their programme. These new model apprenticeships, developed as Trailblazers, are available for a rapidly growing range of roles, and all apprenticeships should now follow this new model.
