The Institute regularly reviews apprenticeship standards to ensure they are high-quality, fit for purpose and deliver for employers and apprentices. We want to hear from you about how these standards are working and where we can make changes for the benefit of apprenticeships and T Levels. At the same time we are also asking for your views on the occupational map relating to the same route. This is because the maps will set out the technical education landscape now and in the future.

Review of the Creative and Design Route

The review of the occupational map and apprenticeship standards for the Creative and Design route commenced on 31 July.  

The standards in scope for the review are: 


The consultation for this route closed on 24 September. These standards will be assessed against the Institute’s current approval criteria taking into consideration feedback from the consultation and wider engagement. We are also reviewing the occupational map.

Due to advice from the Government on Covid-19, all current Route Reviews are now postponed.

The Institute recognises that Covid-19 presents several challenges for employers. A key aim of the Route Reviews is to be consultative and engage with employers in a meaningful way, which is not possible currently.
