This survey invites you to comment on apprenticeship documents submitted by trailblazer groups.

How you can help

These short surveys will take no more than ten minutes to complete. Your feedback will help ensure that any apprenticeships that are developed meet the training needs of relevant occupations, and that new apprenticeships are viable, high quality, and widely supported. In particular, we are keen to avoid duplicating apprenticeships that have already been published or are already in development.

These surveys seek your views on apprenticeships at three stages of development:

Proposal stage

  • Whether you support the development of the proposed apprenticeships;
  • Whether you think the proposed apprenticeships would typically take at least 12 months of training to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for that occupation (required as part of our criteria);

Standard stage

  • Whether these occupations are similar to or duplicate existing standards.

End-point assessment (EPA) stage

  • Whether the end-point assessment will confirm that the apprentice has achieved occupational competence

Please be assured this survey is anonymous and any information collated would be used in strict confidence.
