Apprenticeship Reform Schedule

As part of ongoing apprenticeship reforms for England, the government has overseen the move from apprenticeship frameworks to standards. Existing frameworks have been split into batches and withdrawn over the course of an evolving schedule. Scottish Modern Apprenticeships and frameworks for Wales and Northern Ireland are not affected by these reforms.

Please note: if a framework is listed on the AFO and has not been scheduled for withdrawal, then it has not yet been withdrawn.

For further information please contact us by email at info@instructus.org or refer to the Government’s Removal of Apprenticeship Frameworks page.
