Institute Extends Apprenticeship Flexibilities to March 2021

Last week the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute) announced that it will extend apprenticeship flexibilities until “at least the end of March”.

The special measures introduced by the Institute back in July related to End Point Assessment, and opened up the number of apprenticeship standards that could be assessed remotely. Click here to visit the Institute’s website for a complete list of all affected standards.

The extension of these measures will allow more learners to complete their apprenticeship training as lockdown conditions continue.

Jennifer Coupland, Chief Executive for the Institute, said: “The Institute is determined to do everything we can to support, inform, and reassure the sector through these uncertain and highly challenging times,” she said.

“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 Institute is always keen to hear from training providers and employers. You can contact the Institute at enquiries.ifa@education.gov.uk.

“The amazing support, customer service, interaction and responsiveness of the Instructus team really shines through.”
