Apprenticeships: Useful Links

During 2016/2017, apprenticeship programmes have changed considerably.

Given that apprenticeships are a devolved matter politically, the changes are mostly centred on England.

Some of the key changes include:

* New apprenticeship ‘Standards’ established by ‘Trailblazer’ employer groups.
* A new government funding arrangement for employers - the ‘Apprenticeship Levy’
* A new regulatory body to lead on apprenticeship programmes - the Institute for Apprenticeships’

All of these changes are being introduced over the course of 2017/2018.




The following links are useful places to begin understanding these ‘new’ apprenticeship initiatives:
