2017 Apprenticeship Reform

How will this affect you?

Apprenticeship Reform

The Richard Review of Apprenticeships in England (2012) made a number of recommendations to ensure Apprenticeships would meet the future needs of the changing economy and consistently deliver high quality training.
The Government’s Reform strategy to meet these changing needs, includes:

  • a Government commitment to 3 million Apprenticeship starts by 2020.
  • the creation of the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) to oversee Apprenticeship standards.
  • the launch of an online Apprenticeship Service (AS) to support employers choose an Apprenticeship, find a training provider and a candidate.
  • changes to funding.
  • the replacement of Apprenticeship Frameworks with a new range of Apprenticeship Standards designed by groups of employers to truly meet industry need.
  • a target of 2.3% Apprenticeship starts per year in public sector organisations.
