A toolkit has been created through the collaborative research of hundreds of practitioner colleagues from across the apprenticeship sector. It is the first attempt at defining and understanding what the sector means by “outstanding” teaching, learning and assessment for apprenticeship standards. We applaud their pioneering efforts and their willingness to present their work to the wider sector. We look forward to working with and for the sector as apprenticeship standards become an important and outstanding contributor to our nations skills needs.
