June Apprenticeship Bulletin

By Shelley Measures, Jun 26 2019 09:51AM

We are a little late with your update as the team was away at the CIPD Festival of Work at Olympia. It was great spending two days connecting with people and talking all things L&D, it was also the 2nd of our L&D Apprenticeship field trips. We are so proud to be supporting the careers of the L&D Professionals of the future. If you want to review the all the action, go to Twitter and search #FestivalofWork


A couple of updates for you this month...



Apprenticeship Service for all

From summer 2019, all employers, levy-paying or not, will start to have access to ESFA’s Apprenticeship Service. This will give employers of every size more control over the apprenticeships they want to offer and how to make them work for their business. The transition will take a year but by the end, SMEs will enjoy all the benefits currently reserved for levy payers. Here’s the full ESFA blog:


Standards as Standard


In less than 18 months, apprenticeship frameworks will be withdrawn to be fully replaced by standards. The frameworks are qualification-led and have been criticised by employers for leaving apprentices with skills and behaviour gaps – gaps that employers have had to fill with extra training. Standards are employer-designed and tailored to job roles, giving stronger and more relevant, practical outcomes. The current 400 standards will be increased significantly by the August 2020 frameworks removal deadline. Read more here:


Coaching Apprenticeship is nearly here


Margaret Burnside, Director of CAKE People Development has been part of the trailblazer group working on the standards for the new Coaching Apprenticeship Programme. We are so excited to be able to offer this programme soon, watch this space!!!!!!
