New apprenticeships manual published 

DateWednesday April 28, 2021

A new manual, published today by the Department for Education, has today been published to set out how flexibilities in apprenticeships can be used and delivered in construction – to meet the needs of employers and apprentices.

The ‘Flexible Apprenticeships in Construction’ manual sets out how the delivery of apprenticeship training can be flexed to meet employer needs and how the length of an apprenticeship can be reduced where an individual has existing relevant knowledge or skills.

TESP contributed towards the development of the guide, with the TESP Approved Training routes to becoming a qualified electrician used as an example to show how learners with existing industry qualifications can transfer into an apprenticeship with recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Helping to shape skills strategy is an ongoing part of TESP’s work and we will continue working with government on apprenticeship policies that support the electrical industry.
