Apprenticeship standards are the new type of apprenticeship
developed by employers. Each standard covers a specific job role
and sets out the core skills, knowledge and behaviours an
apprentice will need to be fully competent in their job role and
meet the needs of employers in the sector. Standards are developed
by employer-led groups known as 'trailblazers'.
The standards show what an apprentice will be doing and the
skills required of them, by job role.
More standards will be published as they are developed and
You can find out more about the list of standards and
occupations approved and in development by visiting the Department for Education Apprenticeship
