We would like to remind Employers and Training Providers that all remaining apprenticeship frameworks will be withdrawn to new starts on 31 July 2020.
This follows the Government’s announcement in October 2018, which confirmed that from 1 August 2020, all new apprenticeship starts must be on new, employer-designed standards.
If you are an Employer or Training Provider who currently employs or trains apprentices and use apprenticeship frameworks, please be aware they will no longer be available for new starts from 31 July 2020.
It is important that you factor this into your business planning particularly once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
Currently those apprenticeship frameworks which are still open for registration are only accepting new starts until 31 July 2020.
Urgent key steps for Training Providers to take in the coming weeks;
Support for training providers to manage the transition from frameworks to standards is available on the Education and Training Foundation website.
If you cannot find a standard to meet your business need, please consult the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education website or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
