Revisions status report - July 2021

The revisions status report:

  • shows apprenticeships that are being revised;
  • provides a brief overview of the revisions planned for each apprenticeship; and
  • states the stage that each revision has reached.

The report also provides an opportunity to input views on a suitable notice period for the introduction of a revised version in place of a current version for new starts. This can be done via the relevant Institute relationship manager when the occupational standard and EPA plan are submitted for approval (Stage 2 in the report below)

New cases added since the previous edition are marked as yellow and cases that have progressed to a new stage (or returned to Stage 1 via the approvals process) are marked as orange.

The report does not include apprenticeships that are currently the subject of an Institute route review unless we have already agreed on a recommendation and the revision work has started.

We aim to publish an updated version of this report shortly after our deadline for submissions. This is normally every 8 weeks but this is slightly extended over the summer so we will aim to publish the next report in mid-September. This means elements of it may become out of date before the next version is published, the most up to date position relating to any apprenticeship can always be seen on the webpage relating to that standard.

Please contact the relevant Institute relationship manager if you have any queries about a specific revision. However, any more general enquiries relating to the delivery of apprenticeships should be directed to the Education and Skills Funding Agency

If you have any suggestions as to how it could be improved, please contact David.Sampson@education.gov.uk

The content of the report is also available as a spreadsheet.
