Information for employers and training providers
Over the last three years, employers from over 200 organisations have been working together to develop a suite of new digital apprenticeship standards, under the Trailblazer initiative, to cover all major entry level roles into tech and digital careers. These new standards approved by the Department for Education (DfE), 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 employers recognise the benefits of recruiting new talent through this route. The new standards are replacing the previous arrangements in England. Different provisions are in place for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
