Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009

Section 16: Submission of draft framework for issue: England

57.This section sets out the procedure when individuals and organisations submit a draft apprenticeship framework to the English issuing authority, and request that it be published as a framework. If the authority decides not to issue the framework in the form of a draft, it must give the individual or organisation who has submitted the draft reasons for its decision. The authority can require the individual or organisation to provide information which it needs to assess the framework against the specification of apprenticeship standards for England. In practice, this section will be relevant when learning providers and employers submit new draft apprenticeship frameworks, for occupations or sectors which do not have a framework in place.
