Apprenticeships: Approving Draft Apprenticeship Standards


Apprenticeships are a key component of the growth agenda. The Government is keen that more high quality apprenticeships are created to meet the needs of employers and apprentices, and help drive up growth and productivity across the economy. This survey invites you to comment on new draft apprenticeship Standards submitted this month by our Trailblazer employer groups, before a decision is made on whether to approve them for further development and delivery.

How you can help

This short survey will take no more then ten minutes to complete. Your feedback will enhance the development of Standards submitted by our Trailblazers and help ensure that new apprenticeships are viable, high quality, and widely supported.

The survey seeks your views on:

  • Whether each draft Standard fully covers the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed for full competence in the relevant occupation;
  • Whether the length and skill level of each draft Standard is substantive enough for the relevant occupation.

 The draft Standards submitted this month are:

  1. Fashion and Textiles Product Technologist
  2. Digital Support Technician
  3. Creative Industries Production Manager
  4. Heritage Engineering Technician
  5. Interior Systems
  6. Vehicle Damage Assessor
  7. Broadcast and Media Systems Technician
  8. Engineering Fitter
  9. Storyboard Artist
  10. Probation Services Practitioner
  11. Church Minister
  12. Specialist Textile Technical
  13. Fabricator Level 3
  14. Bicycle mechanic
  15. BEMS Controls Engineer
  16. Probation Officer
  17. Junior Animator



What Happens Next

Your feedback will be considered as part of the assessment process for new apprenticeship Standards and help inform the final approval decision. A list of which Standards have been approved will be available on once confirmed.
