400 apprenticeship standards

11 02.19

The number of apprenticeship standards approved for delivery is set to hit 400 next week, a little over a year after the Institute for Apprenticeships vowed to get ‘faster and better’. The milestone also comes just six months after it passed the 300 mark, and two months ahead of the institute’s own target date of April 2019.


Currently there are 391 standards approved for delivery, with a further 12 waiting for final sign-off on their funding band – including three FE teaching standards. A further 267 are at various stages of development – meaning that the number could soon approach the “700 or 800” total standards predicted by the institute’s former boss Peter Lauener back in 2017.
