Apprenticeships – The National Picture Consultation on Criteria for Higher Apprenticeships at Degree Levels National Apprenticeship Service Government asked the NAS to consult on the statutory requirements for Apprenticeships: –At Levels 4 and 5 –And its extension to Level 6 and above as a route to professional status –And on the naming and terminology for Higher Apprenticeships 64 formal responses received and 120 attended 2 consultation events: –From a cross section of organisations including employers, SSCs, professional bodies, awarding bodies, FE colleges, private training organisations and Higher Education Institutions Broad philosophies and themes have emerged, subject to Government approval: –To be successful Higher Apprenticeships must be employer led –If Higher Apprenticeships are seen as an alternative to traditional higher education programmes they must have parity with existing HE qualifications –Parity with HE does not mean the same; Higher Apprenticeships are different and these differences must be celebrated and promoted
Apprenticeships – The National Picture Consultation on Criteria for Higher Apprenticeships at Degree Levels National Apprenticeship Service The criteria for Higher Apprenticeships at degree levels must: –Underpin individuals aspirations and ability to progress into senior level job roles –Enhance social mobility –Support the development of an employer driven Higher Apprenticeship culture –Acknowledge that at the higher levels greater flexibility is essential –Recognise that proven quality assurance regimes do not need replicating in SASE –Be fit for purpose at Levels 4 – 7 and not simply be a revised system based on requirements developed for Apprenticeship at Levels 2 and 3 –Set the minimum requirements to safeguard the Apprenticeship brand –Not restrict framework developers, operating within the set minimum requirements, from adopting flexible and innovative approaches
Apprenticeships – The National Picture Consultation on Criteria for Higher Apprenticeships at Degree Levels National Apprenticeship Service Higher Apprenticeship Name and Ethos: –Powerful argument for retaining and extending the Apprenticeship name at the higher levels; but there are alternatives –The development of a family of Apprenticeships from Level 2 to 7 helps demonstrate the availability of a work-based ladder of learner and career progression –The choice for learners is not between a vocational or academic pathway as Higher Apprenticeships bridge the academic / vocational divide Transition: –Anticipated new SASE issued from 1 April 2013 –Consideration to be made on how transition arrangements to any revised SASE are managed
Apprenticeships – The National Picture The Richard Review Redefining apprenticeships: They should be targeted only at those who are new to a job or role that requires sustained and substantial training. Focusing on the outcome of an apprenticeship – what the apprentice can do when they complete their training - and freeing up the process by which they get there. Trusted, independent assessment is key. Recognised industry standards should form the basis of every apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships – The National Picture The Richard Review All apprentices should reach a good level in English and maths before they can complete their apprenticeship. Government funding must create the right incentives for apprenticeship training. The purchasing power for investing in apprenticeship training should lie with the employer. Greater diversity and innovation in training – with employers and government safeguarding quality.
Apprenticeships – The National Picture Our Challenges 2012 - 13 National Apprenticeship Service 1 2 3 4 5 Challenging economic outlook for many sectors but investment in skills is vital Lack of awareness of Apprenticeships in schools Consistency in developing high quality Apprenticeships – a skills product employers believe in that delivers what they need Recruitment processes that favour graduates over the vocational route and ignores some great talent Under representation of groups in Apprenticeships
Apprenticeships – The National Picture Our priorities for 2012 - 13 National Apprenticeship Service 1 2 3 4 5 Increasing the number of new employers employing apprentices, especially in core cities and growth sectors Increasing the number of young people starting an Apprenticeship High Quality Apprenticeships More advanced and higher level apprentices Broadening access to the Apprenticeship programme
