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 proposals to develop new Apprenticeship Standards submitted this month by employer groups, before a decision is made on whether to approve them for further development.
How you can help
This short survey will take no more than ten minutes to complete. Your feedback will help ensure that any Standards taken forward for development meet the training needs of relevant occupations, and that new apprenticeships are viable, high quality, and widely supported. In particular we are keen to avoid duplicating Standards that have already been published or are already in development.
The survey seeks your views on:
- Whether you support the development of the proposed Apprenticeship Standards;
- Whether you think the proposed Apprenticeship Standards would typically take at least 12 months of training to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for that occupation (required as part of our criteria);
- Whether these Standards are similar to, or duplicate, existing Standards.
You have the opportunity to comment by Friday 12 February 2016 on:
