Provider Advisory Groups

Provider Advisory Groups (PAGs) are short-life working groups. They contribute to the development of apprenticeships through the expertise of the participants.

The groups feed back on content which has been developed by a Technical Expert Group (TEG).

A PAG is made up of representatives from the training delivery network:

  • colleges and universities

  • independent learning providers

  • employers who deliver training in-house

Who can take part in a Provider Advisory Group?

We welcome current and prospective deliverers of training. Each group member should:

  • have experience and knowledge in that sector

  • understand the apprenticeship role and how to help an apprentice develop in their field

  • know the ideal skills and behaviours of an employee in the sector

  • contribute to discussions about technical skills

  • understand sector trends and developments

  • engage in discussions on emerging changes

Typically, you'll be an assessor, lecturer, trainer or in a related role. You'll have occupational competence in a sector, and experience of delivering work-based learning.

What’s involved in a Provider Advisory Group?

As part of a PAG, you help review and design the qualifications used to underpin apprenticeships. This involves an initial induction then some meetings during the qualification design process.

Meetings may be spread over a 6-month period, and be in-person or online. We'll also ask you to review draft documents between meetings.

As a group, you'll:

  • review and feed back on the outputs from the Technical Expert Group

  • support the design of the qualification

  • contribute to the assessment strategy

  • give guidance on how to deliver the apprenticeship
