Apprenticeship Standards

Apprenticeship standards are the vehicle to make Apprenticeships ‘Employer Led’. Apprenticeship standards develop Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours and include an End Point Assessment (EPA) by an independent organisation. Employers must be satisfied the apprentice is consistently working at, or above, the level of the occupational standard to pass the End Point Assessment Gateway.

Apprenticeship standards have replaced the old apprenticeship frameworks. Currently, there are 147 new standards approved for delivery and an additional 177 in development. There could be as many as 1,700 standards by 2022. Currently, TDR offer 16 standards and this number will increase over the next 12 months as frameworks are replaced.

Apprenticeship standards can help businesses build a skills pipeline to fulfil future roles. The link will take you to further information regarding the apprenticeships TDR offer, they are developed and produced by trail blazer groups relevant to their sector and found within the Institute of apprenticeships website.
