Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009

Section 17: Transitional provision: England

58.This section enables the Secretary of State to make an order providing that a framework already existing as at the date when section 14 comes into force is to be treated as if it were a framework issued under section 14 (a “deemed framework”). This would enable a person to enter into an apprenticeship agreement relating to a framework of this type. The effect of subsection (4), though, is that an order under this section will not be able to permit a person to enter into a first apprenticeship agreement, in relation to an order of this type, after the date specified in that subsection, which is no later than the day after the day that is the school leaving date for 2013. This will provide a reasonable period for deemed frameworks to continue while arrangements are made to issue new frameworks under the specification of apprenticeship standards for England. If new frameworks are issued before that date that would replace deemed frameworks, the Government intends to withdraw the deemed framework. Subsection (3) sets out provision which an order under this section must include.
