ST0215 Assistant Practitioner (Health) V1.1 

We have been advised by OFQUAL that they will retain as the EQA provider for the legacy version of the apprenticeship standard version 1.0. Any queries relating to the version 1.1 of the standard should be referred to the Office for Students. 

Transitioning between Assessment Plans 

Following a consultation process, OFQUAL has produced new guidance around versioning of assessment plans. Where a new assessment plan has been released, providers should ensure that any change does not disadvantage (or advantage) the apprentice. 

Where an apprentice chooses to change assessment plans, please ensure that ACE360 is updated to the correct version is selected. This will prevent issues surrounding assessment and certification claims.
