Apprenticeship Standards


Under the Apprenticeship Reforms, new Apprenticeship Standards will replace the old Specifications for Apprenticeship Standards in England (SASE) Frameworks by 2020.  

It is expected there will be between 600-800 new Apprenticeship Standards, compared to the current 250 SASE Frameworks.

Some of these new Standards are already available for delivery.

Training an apprentice with WCG means:

  • Bespoke on and off the job training
  • Maximising funding opportunities
  • Getting the skills your business needs
