People 1st has extended its consultation on the retailer assessment plans (although the dates on the documents still say the consultation closes on 28 May, it will remain open until mid-end July).
They are calling for responses to make sure the apprenticeship assessment is robust, deliverable, manageable and affordable.
The standards simply set out the knowledge, skills and behaviour that employers have agreed apprentices should have by the time they finish the programme.
Please note that this first consultation focuses only on the planned independent end assessment activities. The trailblazer is currently developing proposals for governance and quality assurance and these will be consulted upon once complete.
Please respond to the consultation using the consultation questions template at the end of this document and then return it by email to email@example.com
The assessment plans and standards will be submitted on the 27 August.
We will update you as soon as possible with any updates and implementation plans.
