Revisions status report - February 2021

The revisions status report:

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

The report also provides an opportunity to input views - either via the Institute survey relating to the relevant apprenticeship standard submission (where available) or via the relevant Institute relationship manager - on a suitable notice period for the introduction of a revised version in place of a current version for new starts.

The report does not include apprenticeship standards that are currently the subject of an Institute route review. Unless we have agreed a recommendation and the revision work has started.

We aim to publish an updated version of this report shortly after our deadline for submissions every 8 weeks.

Please contact the apprenticeships standard’s Institute relationship manager if you have any queries about a revision.

For queries about the report more generally or to suggest how it could be improved, please contact David.Sampson@education.gov.uk
