New apprenticeship standards approved for delivery

Last month the Government approved and published a range of new apprenticeship standards developed by groups of employers. They cover a wide range of sectors including real estate, construction, agriculture and horticulture production and healthcare.

There are now 162 apprenticeship standards that are ready to use with an assessment plan and more than 480 standards that are either approved or in-development.

An independent organisation must be involved in the end-point assessment, and employers will be asked to select an apprentice assessment organisation.

For information about becoming an apprentice assessment organisation, see the register of apprentice assessment organisations.
