Future Apprenticeships

What is the Future Apprenticeships programme?

Within the context of the apprenticeship reforms and the government’s target to deliver 3 million apprentices by 2020, the Future Apprenticeships Support Programme will help managers, teachers, trainers, leaders and those involved in governance to make the transition from apprenticeship frameworks to delivery of the new standards. It builds on the success of the Apprenticeship Staff Support Programme (ASSP).

The programme consists of three strands:

1. Delivering the new apprenticeship standards – through support for curriculum development and teaching, learning and assessment strategies.

2. Supporting employer engagement – two-way street relationships between employers and providers.

3. Supporting leaders and those involved in governance to grow apprenticeships.
