Skillsfirst Apprenticeships

Find out more here...


Apprenticeships in the UK are currently undergoing government reforms. These reforms will have a significant impact on the way apprenticeships are funded and delivered.

 

Over a period of time, apprenticeship standards will replace SASE frameworks. These standards are being developed by employer groups (trailblazers) and are based around job roles. You can find a list of all of the occupations that are currently available here.

 

Skillsfirst remain firmly committed to apprenticeships and are working closely with an increasing number of employers to embed quality, highly valued apprenticeships within their organisations.

 

Although qualifications are no longer mandated in many apprenticeship standards, the majority of our provider and employer partners tell us they still want to give their apprentices the opportunity to achieve a qualification. To support this, we are in the process of reviewing and revising (where required) our qualifications to ensure they reflect the knowledge and competency outlined in the new standards.

 

You can read more about our End-point Assessment (EPA) offer here.
