Changes to approved English apprenticeships

Source: The National Archives | | 07/01/2018

The Apprenticeships (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2017, which only apply in relation to England, came into force on 15 January 2018. The new Regulations:

  • make it a requirement that off-the-job training be provided during the course of an approved English apprenticeship entered into under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009
  • stipulate that the approved English apprenticeship agreement must specify the amount of off-the-job training that the apprentice is to receive during the period of the agreement
  • require that the approved English apprenticeship agreement must also now set out the period for which the apprentice is expected to work and receive training, and this must be at least 12 months (unless an exception applies for certain apprentices who were made redundant).
