The implementation plan for the apprenticeship reforms is well underway and City & Guilds is at the heart of the changes.  In the build-up to National Apprenticeship Week we will be providing up-to-date information on the following:

Working with trailblazers 

Our specialist teams are working with over two thirds of the trailblazer groups responding to individual needs for qualifications and helping to shape work roles and assessment plans to ensure a seamless transition from the current apprenticeship offer into new curriculums.

COMING SOON – On 3rd March we will be launching a New Apprenticeships Hub for information about the trailblazer groups and work roles in development.

Leading the discussion

City and Guilds is driving thought leadership in the FE sector to establish an evidence base that builds thinking about what needs to change so we can ensure best practice in the development and delivery of apprenticeships for individuals, employers and the country as a whole.

Exploring new products and services

We are developing new products and services including independent end assessment of apprentices and formative assessment tools to help employers and providers through the changes, and an online management tool that links innovative new learning technology with learners’ e-portfolios, virtual classrooms, online assessments, reporting, and funding - all to a single account.  

Richard Guy, Head of Apprenticeships at City & Guilds summarises City & Guilds’ response to the reforms:
