Under the Apprenticeship Reforms, new Apprenticeship Standards will replace the old Specifications for Apprenticeship Standards in England (SASE) Frameworks.

Some of these new Standards are already available for delivery, so at present there is a cross-over period where some new Standards are being delivered alongside the SASE Frameworks. However, once a new Standard is in place, the out-dated Framework which it replaces will be discontinued as soon as it’s practical to do so.
The full switchover is expected to take place by 2020, although this date is subject to change.

Each occupation will now have its own new Apprenticeship Standard linked to a specific occupational level. The new Trailblazer apprenticeships which are defined by these new Standards are rigorous, challenging and require the apprentice to undertake a minimum of one year’s training.
