A proposal to move the care apprenticeship at level 3 to a core and options approach was submitted in October 2019. The options will reflect the HEE/S4C core competency frameworks and will include an option for employees specialising in learning disabilities and/or autism.
Jo Land from Avenues has led the group submitting the proposal with support from a number of employers within VODG as well as from S4C, Bild and Tizard.
The group is now developing the full submission for the Institute for Apprenticeships to be submitted in January 2020. You can view the draft proposal here.
This proposal has now gone live for consultation. The closing date for consultations is 10th November, 2019. Access the consultation here.
