Apprentices and Employers
The significant majority of apprenticeship provision will continue to be delivered whilst CV-19 continues. Our guidance sheets and FAQs are being regularly updated to take account of both updated guidance from government and questions from our employers and apprentices.
For apprentices, we are working hard to support you during this challenging period. It may be the case that your work is continuing in relatively normality or it might equally be that you have been furloughed and are wanting to make sure that you can continue to develop your knowledge and skills during this period. We understand also that a lengthy period of furlough may be daunting and we want to assure you that we will be on hand to support you during this time.
For employers, we appreciate that your needs are frequently wider than the apprenticeship and that you have questions about a range of support that might be available. For you and your apprentice we reiterate that there will continue to be support and teaching throughout this period, even though it will be differently accessed. For your wider needs we continue to work to update links to advice, guidance and support that we are aware of as a College. In our Government Advice and Guidance on Coronavirus for Employers document you will find both the latest links to central government advice and local links where appropriate.
Our teaching and assessment teams have been working hard to make sure that we have contacted each of our apprentices and employers to provide you with details of how support will continue for learning. If you have any further questions then please contact them in the first instance.
We are publishing some guidance for those apprentices on standards so that you can understand what the current situation means for you and how your End Point Assessment might change as a result.
Please continue to reach out to us so that we can support you in the most appropriate way. Our Twitter feed and other social media shows you that life is very much continuing for the College, our apprentices and our employers.
