A new manual, co-authored by Industry and Government with input from the ECITB, sets out how flexibilities in apprenticeships in construction and engineering construction can be used and delivered to meet the needs of employers and apprentices.

The ‘Flexible Apprenticeships in Construction’ manual, published today by the Department for Education, covers:

The ECITB encourages employers to think creatively about how they can tailor apprenticeship training to meet their needs. The manual features case studies from the ECITB showcasing how front loading can support apprentices and how the ECITB Scholarship equips learners with the skills they need to reach occupational competence sooner and support progression into accelerated apprenticeships.

If you are interested in finding out more about front loading, accelerated apprenticeships or the wider range of delivery models, the manual can be found here or you can visit for more information.

You may also be interested in contributing to the consultation launched on 20 April to deliver new flexi-job apprenticeships in industries where employment is often project-based and short-term, such as the creative industries.

Employer incentives payments, in place until September 2021, mean there is £3,000 available for every apprentice hired.
