About Apprenticeships:

Everyone is familiar with the word apprenticeships. Traditionally, an apprenticeship was the entry point for a young person in many skills based industries. Apprenticeships are now used by a wide variety of business to train new people in their organisations. Apprenticeships are also widely used to upskill existing staff and enable them to achieve nationally accredited qualifications.

Apprenticeship Standards have been developed to supersede the frameworks. Groups of employers from all sectors of the economy have come together to develop a new standard to meet the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours (KSBs) requirements for their organisations / sectors.
