This report details the results of a workshop held on 29 March 2019.

The workshop was based around a discussion of what level of employer demand exists for an advanced (or higher) level apprenticeship standard.

The proposed level 3 apprenticeship standard would support the training and development of health and wellbeing workers who are in community-centered roles.

The workshop covered:

  • the level of employer demand for an apprenticeship standard
  • whether a common ‘occupational identity’ is shared by various job roles with different titles
  • actions that could be taken to develop a level 3 apprenticeship standard

The workshop was attended by representatives of higher education institutions, as well as employers from a range of sectors (including charities, social enterprises and skills councils).
