Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards

Website last updated on 4 May 2017:

As part of the government’s drive to ensure apprenticeships are high-quality and to deliver the skills our economy needs, apprenticeship frameworks are being replaced by employer-designed apprenticeship standards. This was announced in December 2015 in the Government publication “English Apprenticeships: Our 2020 Vision”. More information can be found on the Government website.

This webpage provides information on employer-designed Apprenticeship Standards in the Energy and Utilities Sector, both existing and those in development.

If you are interested in finding out more about the new Apprenticeship Standards, you can view our introductory webinar here (duration 20 minutes)

We have also produced a frequently asked question document which can be accessed here
