Phase 3 Trailblazer Apprenticeship FAQ
Who is involved?
Employers are working with their industry bodies, such as Sector Skills Councils, and with other partners when needed, such as training providers and awarding organisations. Visit our 'Who's Involved' to see the full list of steering professionals already behind the Trailblazers scheme.
What is a Standard?
Just 2 pages, clearly stating the skills and knowledge requirements, and in some standards the behaviours, that define full competence in an occupation. Plus an annex outlining the assessment approach for the standard.
What is the time frame?
The Trailblazers have typically had around three months to create the standard and the assessment approach. The full
implementation will take around another six months. All the
Apprenticeship standards needed by a sector must be in place by 2017, as existingApprenticeship frameworks will be withdrawn.
