People 1st Consultation

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) recently consulted on the withdrawal of apprenticeship frameworks in April 2018. People 1st responded to their consultation and suggested that, where a framework is subject to review and there is a new and approved apprenticeship standard in place, that certain pathways should actually be withdrawn earlier.

People 1st is now running a consultation on this topic. The final decision on withdrawal dates will reflect the outcome of the consultation, so People 1st wants to ensure that employers have had their say. Employers are invited to take part in the short survey by 8 June.
