Remaining apprenticeship frameworks to be withdrawn
The ESFA has reminded providers that all remaining apprenticeship frameworks will be withdrawn to new starts on 31 July 2020. From 1 August 2020, all new apprenticeship starts must be on new, employer-designed standards.
Existing apprentices on frameworks will still be able to complete on the framework, providing they started on or before 31 July 2020. A full list of available standards can be viewed on the Institute for Apprenticeship and Technical Education’s website. You can find out more about how employers are working with the new standards on this blog and you may also like to watch this ESFA webinar that provides support and guidance on how to prepare to deliver standards.
