New Apprenticeship Standards have been developed by employers. Information on individual programme areas and subjects can be found by clicking the button below.
Apprenticeship Standards differ from the Apprenticeship Frameworks, in that in some standards, there is no requirement for the Apprentice to complete a formal qualification. However, the Apprentice must still demonstrate how they have met the skills, knowledge & behaviours set out in the standard.
As part of the new Apprenticeship Standard all Apprentices will be required to complete a mandatory End Point Assessment.
The End Point Assessment can include many forms, but in most cases the Apprentice will be required to sit an online exam, complete a practical assessment as well as be observed in their workplace or complete a formal discussion. The Apprentice will also produce a portfolio of evidence during the apprenticeship course.
