Apprentice Transition Plan

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some businesses have had to make difficult decisions, including making apprentices redundant. The Apprentice Transition Plan has been put in place to support Modern Apprentices and to help them make the next step in their career. 

Benefits for you

If you’re looking to take on an apprentice who has been made redundant, the Record of Achievement that's part of the plan is a useful record. It contains information about an individual’s abilities and accompanies their CV. It offers:

  • quality-assured evidence of an apprentice’s training and qualifications  
  • a complete record of a job applicant’s skills and achievements 

This improves the recruitment process because employers can understand accurately a candidate’s skills and abilities.

Benefits for apprentices

The Apprentice Transition Plan can help Modern Apprentices by:

  • offering support to help them complete their qualification

  • helping them to recognise their skills and be confident in talking about them to a prospective new employer

  • providing a record of learning certificated in their apprenticeship to date

  • providing a record of bench-marked transferable skills that employers recognise

  • helping them plan for further learning or employment
