Apprenticeship Reforms: Withdrawal of Frameworks

In March, the Skills Funding Agency announced the first batch of apprenticeship frameworks to be removed and in their latest update, a second batch of 60 apprenticeship frameworks has been published that will be withdrawn for new starts from 1 December 2016. View the full list here.

These frameworks had a low number of reported starts in the 2014 to 2015 and the 2015 to 2016 funding years or have provision covered by developing apprenticeship standards. This change will not affect those apprentices currently completing their apprenticeship on these frameworks.
