A new document setting out guidance for apprentices, employers, training providers and assessment organisations in response to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), has been published by the government.
It outlines the changes that the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) is making to the apprenticeship programme during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The new guidance should be read alongside:
- guidance on financial support for businesses during coronavirus (COVID-19) – the salary support for furloughed employees, also applies to apprentices
- articles on the apprenticeship service for employers, training providers and end-point assessment organisations
- articles on the apprenticeship service for apprentices
- guidance from the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE) on the delivery of assessment
