Coronavirus and Apprenticeships

  • Posted

The government has published further guidance for apprentices, as well as for employers, training providers, end-point assessment organisations and external quality assurance providers.

It's long. Very long. Truth be told, it's also very dull. Here are a few of the key points from a skim-read:

- confirming apprentices on furlough can continue their training as long as it does not provide services or generate revenue for their employer (we knew that already)

- encouraging both training, and assessment, to take place remotely

- granting extensions, where appropriate, to the timetable for assessments

- allowing breaks in learning, and explaining how they should be recorded

- stating HM Treasury will not be pausing apprenticeship levy payments for employers
