Preparing to deliver the new Apprenticeship Standards? What's different?
Tue 2 May 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
Background and Aims
The Government, building on the already successful programme of Apprenticeships, has set a target to grow the number of apprenticeships available to reach 3 million starts in 2020 (English Apprenticeships: Our 2020 Vision).
The Richard Review (2012) highlighted the need for significant improvements to be made to make Apprenticeships more rigorous and responsive to the needs of employers which would, in turn, help to drive growth in the number of apprenticeships.
A key feature of the change is that Employers (Trailblazer groups) are working together designing standards and assessment plans for apprenticeships to ensure they are higher quality and more relevant to employer needs in different sectors.
This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to consider the differences between delivering apprenticeship frameworks to delivery of the new Standards. It will also enable providers to consider, for their own vocational area, any planning that needs to be in place to make the step change.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Discuss the Apprenticeship Reforms and how these impact on delivery
- Review Standards/Assessment Plans – the new terminology and terrain
- Discuss delivery models and resources
- Share ideas as to how to prepare for the changes ahead
- Vocational Trainers
- Curriculum Managers
The facilitator: Wendy Wilkinson has been working, over the past 3 years, with Employer (Trailblazer groups), SSCs, and Providers to support the transition from frameworks to standards.
