IfATE Proposed Changes to the Mandatory Qualifications Criteria consultation
CIOB have responded to the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education (IfATE) consultation on proposed changes to the mandatory qualifications criteria.
IfATE are proposing changes to the requirements that we use when deciding whether an apprenticeship should include a mandatory qualification (a qualification which is mandated in the occupational standard, to be completed by an apprentice as part of their apprenticeship). In updating our criteria, we will strengthen and make clearer our expectations for the suitability of a qualification, to ensure that only those which are truly necessary and deliver for apprentices and employers are included.
The consultation response was submitted via web survey, however, our response can be accessed below.
