EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make provision for circumstances where a person has not entered into an apprenticeship agreement but is working under alternative working arrangements, by specifying the alternative English completion conditions which will entitle them to receive an apprenticeship certificate. They apply in cases where a person works in certain specified occupations as a self-employed person or otherwise than for reward (regulation 3 and Schedule 1); where a person has been dismissed by reason of redundancy, so that that person can complete the apprenticeship within 6 months of the date of the redundancy (regulation 4); and where an athlete has completed an elite sports framework in respect of a specified sport with a view to participating in the Olympic, Winter Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth Games (regulation 5 and Schedule 2).

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
