  3. Apprenticeships in EnglandDefinition of an Apprenticeship – NAS Quality Statement May 2012 An Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme (contained in a recognised framework) Employers will be centrally involved in its design, development and delivery It allows the apprentice to gain real and relevant experience in a paid, productive job whilst gaining theoretical knowledge and qualifications The mix differentiates the Apprenticeship experience from training to meet narrowly job focused needs On completion, the apprentice must be able to undertake the full range of duties, in the range of circumstances appropriate to the job, confidently and competently to a high standard expected by the employer Apprenticeships in England

  17. Apprenticeships in England Governance – who is responsible for what? Specification of Apprenticeship Standards in England (SASE – April 2011) set out the common framework for all Apprenticeships Each framework contains 3 core elements delivered over a minimum of 280 hours per year Theoretical knowledge – understanding the vocational area and subject (Technical Certificate) Competence – assessment that you can perform the core job tasks well (NVQ) Functional skills – English, maths and IT All the above are broken down into separate qualification elements – either exams or assessments of evidence or competence. Apprentices also need to learn about the following non-assessed elements: Employee Rights and Responsibilities – what does it mean to be an employee Personal Learning and Thinking Skills – learn to learn and work in teams SASE also requires: An employer for the apprentice and a contract between the apprentice and employer (from April 2012 Apprenticeship Agreement must be included) Equality and Diversity assessment – is the opportunity available for everybody? Progression routes – how do you get to this level? Where do you go next? Apprenticeships in England

  18. Apprenticeships in England Who develops the frameworks? • 25 Sector Skills Councils/Bodies representing employers in their sector and determining National Occupational Standards have responsibility for developing new frameworks compliant with SASE requirements. • SSC/Bs work with training providers to develop new frameworks. • The Alliance of Sector Skills Councils works on behalf of all 25 and is the legal issuing authority for Apprenticeship Frameworks and Certificates. The certificate is only issued when all elements of the Apprenticeship have been completed. The apprentice must sign to say this is the case. • The Alliance is responsible for the online systems Apprenticeship Frameworks Online and Apprenticeship Certificates England. • Awarding Organisations manage and develop the qualifications which make up the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) • Apprenticeship funding is for training only, not wage subsidy.

  20. Apprenticeships in England Who delivers Apprenticeships? Mostly Further Education colleges (public) or training providers (private) who receive the funding for the training Training providers manage the Apprenticeship for the employer (especially small ones) – recruitment (AV) and training Training normally takes place 1 day a week at the college or training provider Apprentices usually work 4 days a week or more – flexible to meet employer’s needs Apprenticeship Training Agencies (ATAs) can employ apprentices and place them with different employers to complete their Apprenticeship (fixed term employment, one employer can’t provide all necessary experience etc) Some large employers deliver their own Apprenticeships in house with or without public funding support. Group Training Associations (GTAs) train on behalf of groups of employers, generally in specific sectors Apprenticeships in England

  21. Apprenticeships in EnglandOther Apprenticeship information • Wages: these are paid by the employer and must not be less than the National Minimum Wage agreed for the age group and level of skill. Apprenticeship funding cannot be used to pay wages. • Duration: depends on the requirements of the framework but should not be less than 12 months for 16-18 year olds. It will never be less than 6 months even for older apprentices. • Progression: apprentices can progress to a higher level but not repeat the same training elements. The QCF allows flexibility in developing individual pathways to take into account current skills and further training required to complete the framework. • Government funding: 100% for 16-18 year olds at all levels; 50% for 19-24 with 50% from employer in cash or kind; 25+ at 40%.
