Employment Responsibilities and Rights (ERR) and Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) in Health Apprenticeships

Mon Mar 23 13:18:54 UTC 2015

Some of our health qualifications are changing. All health apprentices will complete the same Employment Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) and Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) qualifications whichever awarding organisation they are registered with. Find out more in this update.

From 1 April 2015, the health intermediate and advanced apprenticeship frameworks will be updated to include the following Pearson qualifications covering the requirements for ERR and PLTS:

  • 601/0117/9 - Pearson BTEC Level 2 Award in Employment and Personal Learning Skills in Health
  • 600/9666/4 - Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award in Employment and Personal Learning Skills in Health

The following qualifications will no longer be available to apprentices starting on the health frameworks from 1 April 2015. They will still be available for apprentices in other sectors.

  • 501/1790/7 - Pearson BTEC Level 2 Extended Award in Workskills for Effective Learning and Employment
  • 501/1792/0 - Pearson BTEC Level 3 Extended Award in Workskills for Effective Learning and Employment

This change means that all health apprentices will complete the same ERR and PLTS qualifications whichever awarding organisation they are registered with, and therefore will bring Pearson apprentices in line with all other health apprentices.

Any health apprentices who register on the Extended Awards in Workskills for Effective Learning and Employment before 1 April 2015 may continue through to completion.

Structure of the new qualifications

The two new qualifications have been integrated from Pearson EDI. As the Extended Awards in Workskills comprise a wide range of units and are therefore applicable to apprentices in all sectors, the new qualifications are structured so that apprentices undertake units that are most appropriate to working in the health sector. All the units in the new qualifications have been taken from the Workskills qualifications.
