A timeline summary of the government’s reforms to its apprenticeships programme has been produced by the Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network (GMLPN).
The chart (link below) shows where key documents can be accessed, the key dates over the next three months, plus the closing dates for two consultations that close on 5th September 2016.
With regard to the consultations, given the enormity of the changes and the impact on providers, the GMLPN urges everyone to respond. Submissions can also be shared with the GMLPN (by 31st August), which will help the Network to produce a collective response that reflects the views of its members. The GMLPN will then produce a draft collective response on 1st September which will be submitted by the deadline.
