372.Subsection (1) allows the Commission to prepare apprenticeship frameworks. The Commission may also secure preparation of apprenticeship frameworks by other persons.

374.The Commission must keep apprenticeship frameworks under review and must determine whether a framework should be revised or withdrawn (subsection (6)).

375.A published apprenticeship framework must state the coming into force date of the framework or revised framework (subsection (8)).
