Estio IT apprenticeship programmes
Estio Training is now delivering new standards apprenticeships in the following areas:
In 2012, the Review of Apprenticeships in England was commissioned by the Secretary of State for Education and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS). The review aimed at identifying whether apprenticeships delivered the training, qualifications and skills that employers and learners needed.
The resulting report highlighted that a significant number of employers felt current SASE Apprenticeship Frameworks were not fit for industry needs.
As a result, the Government formed a strategy to redefine apprenticeships to meet these changing needs.
Employers have designed apprenticeship standards so that they meet the needs of their industry.
A standard should:
- Be short, concise and clear
- Set out the full competence needed in an occupation in terms of Knowledge, Skills and Behaviour (KSBs)
- Have the support of employers including smaller businesses
- Be sufficiently stretching so that it will require at least a year of sustained and substantial training to meet the standard
- Align with professional registration where it exists
- Contain minimum English and maths requirements and only include mandatory qualifications under certain circumstances
