Notification of the withdrawal of apprenticeship frameworks

Pearson Work Based Learning and Colleges wishes to advise centres of the withdrawal of the first batch of Business Skills related SASE frameworks from 1 June 2016 as part of apprenticeship reforms.

You will be aware that as part of apprenticeship reforms, there have been no new SASE frameworks developed or issued since 31 August 2014 and that new apprenticeship standards are being developed by groups of employers (Trailblazers).

BIS have confirmed that funding for new starts will be ceased on the frameworks listed below on 1 June 2016 and from this date there will be no further starts on these frameworks.

Apprentices still completing their apprenticeship on these frameworks will continue to do so, on their agreed funding arrangements, and their apprenticeship completion certificate can be claimed in the usual manner.
