Section 2: Meaning of “completing a Welsh apprenticeship”

43.Section 2 sets out the circumstances in which a person completes a Welsh apprenticeship in relation to an apprenticeship framework (defined in section 12). The requirement is that the person meets the standard Welsh completion conditions or the alternative Welsh completion conditions. The standard completion conditions are set out in subsection (3). They require the person concerned to have entered into an apprenticeship agreement (see sections 32 to 36) which, at the date on which it was entered into, related to a recognised Welsh apprenticeship framework. The conditions also require the person, while working under the agreement, to have completed a course of training for the qualification identified by the framework in question as the “competencies qualification”, and to have met all the other requirements specified in the apprenticeship framework for the award of a certificate.

44.The effect of subsection (4) is as described in paragraph 41.

45.Subsections (5) and (6) enable the Welsh Ministers to make regulations to provide for circumstances where a person has not entered into an apprenticeship agreement but is working under alternative working arrangements. This power might be exercised also in the instances described in paragraph 42.
