QUESTION Do all standards which have been approved, which did not include information about the 20% off the job training rule need to be re-looked at and updated.? 

 

Guidance for groups of employers (trailblazers) on proposing and developing a new apprenticeship standard.

Apprenticeships must last a minimum of 12 months, with 20% structured off-the-job training, before the end-point assessment, to develop competence in an occupation. Off-the- job training is learning which is undertaken outside the normal day-to-day working environment and contributes towards the achievement of the apprenticeship. Although this can include training that is delivered at the apprentice’s normal place of work, it must not be delivered as part of their normal working duties. The off-the-job training must be directly relevant to the apprenticeship.

 

An apprenticeship standard shows what an apprentice will be doing and the skills they need.

This guidance sets out the process and policy on:

  • applying to develop an apprenticeship standard
  • drafting the standard and assessment plan
  • using a standard

Proposal deadlines:

  • Midnight on Wednesday, 30 August
  • Midnight on Wednesday, 27 September

Submit your proposals or plans online
