Trailblazer News

The Farrier New Standard Apprenticeship Assessment Plan was submitted to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) by the September deadline. We have had the following response from the Tralblazer Team:


Dear Trailblazers,

This month’s approvals deadline has now passed and all proposals to develop new apprenticeship standards; draft standards, and draft assessment plans, have been put online as part of our short approvals surveys, to give all interested parties a chance to comment.

We would like to emphasise that we do not expect you or your Trailblazer group members to comment on documents that you have submitted this month. However, you may be interested in commenting on other new proposals, standards or assessment plans submitted that may have relevance to your area. You may also wish to promote the survey to your wider sector contacts, particularly if they did not have the chance to input during your own consultation.

This month’s survey on new Apprenticeship proposals is here the survey on draft Standards is here, and the survey on assessment plans is here. All the surveys will close on 14 October.

Warm Regards

The Trailblazer Team
