Major employers meet to ensure standards in digital and degree apprenticeships
Major employers from across the tech sector joined with training providers and universities this week for the digital apprenticeship and degree apprenticeship standards steering group’s inaugural meeting.
Information for employers and training providers
A new set of apprenticeship standards, developed under the Trailblazer initiative, have recently been approved by BIS. Designed by employers for employers, these new apprenticeship standards will give employers confidence that their apprentice will develop the skills they need to make real contribution to their company.
Significant demand is expected for these apprentices, as more and more tech employers recognise the benefits of recruiting new talent through this route. The standards will replace the existing arrangements over the next few years. The links below tell you a bit more about these roles and, as soon as these are published by BIS, the Standard, Assessment Plan and Occupational Brief will also be available through them.
