Apprenticeship help extended
The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education will extend apprenticeship flexibilities until at least the end of March 2021.
The special measures will allow the completion of apprenticeships through the coronavirus pandemic.
The Institute’s chief executive Jennifer Coupland said, “The Institute is determined to do everything we can to support, inform, and reassure the sector through these uncertain and highly challenging times.
“The flexibilities have done a fantastic job with helping apprentices complete their apprenticeships while still upholding quality and this will now continue until at least the end of March.”
The measures have been rolled out for more than 100 apprenticeships to ensure learners are still able to complete their studies. In most cases they allow for high quality remote rather than face-to-face assessment.
