Interesting, we haven’t as yet, delivered any standards so I am not sure of the process of claiming the apprenticeship certificate, will this still be done via ACE? I notice on the ACE website that everything still seems to refer to frameworks rather than standards.
We will deliver standards to our H&SC learners from next month so I am watching this thread with interest, thanks for posting Darren
Just been looking for whether you’re expected to assess learners’ maths and English and I’ve noticed that it does specify Functional Skills or GCSEs in paragraph 106.1. I guess they no longer accept Key Skills or A/AS levels, at least for now.
The funding rules state: We will fund apprentices to achieve qualifications in English or maths (or both), if they do not already meet the required standard (please see below).
The usual stipulation for a standard is to achieve a level 2 and as such where a learner has a qualification above a GCSE grade A* to C then they will have met the required standard.
