Earlier this month, we published our first revisions status report. This report details the apprenticeships that are currently being revised, why they are being revised and what stage they are at. Where available, it includes links to agreed revised versions of occupational standards and end-point assessment plans and details of any notice periods before revised versions will replace current versions for new starts.
The primary purpose of the report is to keep training providers, end-point assessment organisations and external quality assurance providers up to date with planned versions. Also to show them in advanced revised versions and give notice of when they will be introduced. Over the next few weeks, we will also add banners on each apprenticeship web pages to further highlight those apprenticeships under revision.
The report also provides an opportunity to input your views on suitable notice periods for the introduction of revised versions for new starts. You can do this either via the Institute surveys relating to apprenticeship submissions (where available) or through the relevant Institute relationship manager.
As well as the report sitting on our website, we will use our and ESFA networks to ensure that all relevant stakeholders get to see it. We plan to update the report every 8 weeks.
This improved transparency on revisions is particularly important as the apprenticeship programme matures. If you have any feedback on how it can be improved, please email: [email protected]
