Withdrawal of apprenticeship frameworks
As previously published, the government will move from apprenticeship frameworks to standards by 2020. We can now confirm that all frameworks will be withdrawn by the 2020 to 2021 academic year, as we expect that employers and providers will have completed the transition by this date.
The last date for new starts for all remaining live apprenticeship frameworks will be 31 July 2020.
All starts from 1 August 2020 will be on new, employer-designed standards.
