Working with others to influence the shape of new apprenticeships 18/02/2016

John Bibby attended a recent meeting with other key organisations in the housing sector convened by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) to discuss the future of apprenticeships.


The government is seeking to improve the quality of apprenticeships by ensuring employers have input into what apprentices do and the skills required by them. The new "Trailblazer Programme" enables groups of employers to influence apprenticeship standards and a number of housing organisations have recently finalised the development of new standards and assessment plans for housing and property management apprenticeships at levels 2, 3 and 4. These have now been approved and will be available for new apprentice housing assistants, managers and senior managers to undertake soon.


By being involved in this way the sector is showing its willingness to step up and help to lead the development of high quality and employer led apprenticeships.
