Apprenticeship standards for your industry

Designed by employers, for employers

Employers understand the skills their businesses need better than anyone else, which is why we're putting them at the heart of apprenticeships.

Standards are designed by groups of employers known as 'trailblazers'. Each standard sets out the skills, knowledge and behaviours employers require, so they are more responsive to the wants and needs of your business, now and in the future.

Apprentices complete apprenticeship standards by passing a holistic end-point assessment that demonstrates they have achieved occupational competency.
