The Federation’s CEO, Matt lambert issued a press release on Friday 3rd April which announced the launch of the Federation’s “COVID-19 Apprenticeship Portal” where all those involved in Apprenticeship delivery, assessment and quality assurance were invited to submit workable solutions for the continuation of training and assessment activities during the crisis which may become best practices for use by others. The survey will also identify regulatory and other bottlenecks. Initially, the information will be gathered via an open-ended online survey. This initiative has been launched in a bid to protect the UK’s Apprentices and vocational training during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federation will review and collate survey responses and identify the key issues and challenges being faced and, where appropriate, take any proposed improvements or practical solutions to government agencies/ regulators for urgent approval. A key objective is also to provide a free to access portal where best practices and experiences can be shared across the Apprenticeship sector
