The sustainability framework sets out the key themes for all employers to consider, no matter what sector they are in. This is a helpful guide, to ensure employers can consider how every apprenticeship can contribute to climate change goals. 

The Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Institute have identified the need for integrating ‘sustainability’ into the development of new and updated apprenticeships and technical qualifications.

This is to support the UK in achieving its commitment to national and international sustainability goals. Sustainable development achieves value for money, generating benefits not only to the organisation but also to society while minimising damage to the environment now and in the future.

Relationship managers will use this framework as part of the apprenticeship development and revisions process to ensure that all future products being drafted have given thought to sustainability and particularly net-carbon zero.
