A final report will be published in the New Year, detailing the outcome of the review


Consultation on Digital Apprenticeship standards forming part of the Pilot Digital Review.  

This consultation ran from 20 September 2018 to 18 October 2018.​

Consultation overview (closed): Click to view

On 20 September 2018, the Institute began the statutory review of existing standards on the Digital route.

Further information on the statutory reviews can be found here.

As part of the review, we are consulting on the standards on the Digital Route that were approved for delivery prior to the establishment of the Institute. The review will focus on the occupational standard in the first instance. We intend this as a proportionate approach with revisions to the assessment plan and funding band being made if necessary, dependent on the scale of change.

We would very much appreciate feedback on the apprenticeship standards in scope of the review, listed below. We have created a short questionnaire to gather the insight of employers, apprentices, providers and other key stakeholders on each of the occupational standards, which you can read in full by accessing the relevant link.
