Apprenticeship Programmes

The Apprenticeship Levy funds can only be spent on training via approved apprenticeship 'Standards,’ which are delivered by approved training providers.  

There are over 600 possible apprenticeship ‘standards’ (training programmes) which exist. A link to the available apprenticeship standards can be found on the Institute of Apprenticeships Webpage.

You can search by keyword or browse by 'Route’ or Level 

How do I know if an apprenticeship standard is relevant to my role?

Each apprenticeship standard will detail the role overview and the Knowledge, Skills and behaviours (KSB’s) that the apprentice will need to be able to learn, and evidence competency in, by the end of the apprenticeship duration.

The Staff Apprenticeship Lead will be able to support you to decide which apprenticeship standard is most suitable.
