Why are we reforming Apprenticeships? To meet the needs of the future economy and businesses. To ensure Apprenticeships are more rigorous and responsive to the needs of employers following Richard Review Apprenticeships viewed with the same esteem as University The changes will build on existing strengths
What are the main aims of the reforms? High quality Higher expectations of English and Maths, more assessment at end of Apprenticeship and introducing grading. Employer driven Ensuring rigorous training that will support economic growth Simple Complex frameworks to be replaced by standards of around one page written by employers.
Standards designed by employers will replace existing Frameworks. New standards will be clear and concise, written by employers and no more than two pages long. All Apprenticeships will have an end-point assessment. Apprenticeships will be graded for the first time. All Apprenticeships will last a minimum of 12 months. What changes are we making to Apprenticeships?
Trailblazers are leading the way in implementing the reforms. Trailblazers are led by large and small employers. Over 400 employers are involved in the Trailblazers so far. They are building on what already exists to ensure that professionalism and quality in training are the primary focus. How will we deliver the reforms ?

We are trialling our funding approach through the Trailblazers to learn lessons for future delivery. For every £1 that an employer invests in training an apprentice, the Government will pay £2 up to a cap. Extra funding will be provided to support small businesses and for younger apprentices aged English and maths (Level 1 & 2) will also be fully funded. To ensure support for a wide range of apprentices, a cap is set on the amount of core funding that we can provide. Each standard will be allocated to one of five caps What funding model are we trialling in 2014/15?
AY14/15 Funding Model for Trailblazers Maximum Core Government contribution (£2 for every £1 from employer) Cap 1Cap 2Cap 3Cap 4Cap 5 £2,000£3,000£6,000 £8,000£18,000 Employer contribution if the maximum cap is claimed £1000£1,500£3,000£4,000£9,000 Additional incentive payments Recruiting a year old £600 £900£1,800 £2,400 £5,400 For a small business (<50) £500 £900 £1,200 £2,700 For successful completion £500 £900 £1,200 £2,700 Maximum total Government contribution £3,600£4,900£9,600£12,800£28,800
Employers will select a lead provider to coordinate their training and assessment delivery Employers will agree a price for their training and assessment delivery with their chosen providers Incentive payments are paid during the first year: for year old - 50% at 3 months and 50% at 12 months For small businesses – 100% at 3 months For completion - at the end of the Apprenticeship Employers have complete flexibility on what they use any incentive payments for. All SFA funding, including the incentive payments will be routed through the lead provider What funding model are we trialling in 2014/15?
The Trailblazers will pave the way for full implementation of the reforms during 2015/16 and 2016/17. The aim is that all new Apprenticeship starts from 2017/18 will be on the new programme. As the new standards are developed and agreed, we will cease funding Apprenticeships under former frameworks. What is the timetable for reform?
