Apprenticeship standards

The new-style apprenticeships have been developed by employers and state exactly what an apprentice should be able to do once they complete their programme. 

The standards form progressive career pathways, incorporating the knowledge, skills and behaviours employers have defined for today’s industry. 

View the apprenticeship standards, assessment plans and progession routes for your industry, plus access guidance to support the delivery of apprenticeships.
