Overview

Apprenticeships: Approving Draft Apprenticeship Standards

Overview

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.Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Design & Applications Engineer

2.Laboratory Scientist Degree Apprenticeship

3.Degree Apprenticeship Food & Drink Advanced Engineer

4.Senior Leader Masters Degree

5.Level 7 Academic Professional

6.Paramedic

7.Food & Drink Manufacturing Manager

8.Vehicle Auto-Care Technician

9.Manufacturing Operative

10.Specialist Tyre Technician

11.Public Policy Officer

12.Contact Handler - Emergency Services and NHS Integrated Urgent Care

13.Improvement Expert

15.School Business Director Degree Apprenticeship

A copy of the draft Standard will download when you select the one you want to comment on in question 4. If you would like to comment on more than one Standard you will be prompted to do so once you have finished responding to the first.

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 gov.uk once confirmed.

A new survey will be open for one week from the last Friday of every month, inviting feedback on all draft Standards submitted that month.
