SASE update

The trailblazer group have advised that the revised version of the Leader in Adult Care Apprenticeship standard has been submitted to the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) for review and approval. The revisions reflect feedback from stakeholders and requirements from IfA.

In order to facilitate a smooth transition to the new standard and ensure continuity of apprenticeship provision at level 5 the current level 5 apprenticeship SASE framework will remain open for new registrations until 31 August 2018.

This has been agreed between Skills for Care, awarding organisations and the adult care trailblazer group.

The registration period for the existing qualification Level 5 Leadership and Management will be extended by all awarding organisations until 31 August 2018 (agreed by the Joint Awarding Body Quality Group - JABQG).

The new Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management in Adult Care will be launched on 1 September 2018 by which time the apprenticeship standard assessment plan will be expected to have been published.
