The Institute understands the unique challenge that Covid-19 presents to the delivery of apprenticeships and that its impact is widespread.  We are working closely with the Department for Education and Education and Skills Funding Agency to address sector concerns and issues as they arise.

You can access the Institute’s specific guidance in our Covid-19 hub.

You can access the broader apprenticeship guidance from across government on GOV.UK

We know that you will have questions for us at the Institute – and we would like you to send them directly to so that we can reply to you quicker.

We will seek to answer any questions over the coming days and to provide you with the help and support that you deserve to deal with these exceptional circumstances.

We will also let you know if your question is best addressed to the ESFA or the Department rather than the Institute, to help save you time.

Should you need to speak to someone about an imminent assessment please speak to the external quality assurance provider for the apprenticeship standard or email the Institute at
