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.

  1. Cultural Learning and Participation Officer
