Rich in express employers including Hermes and the Royal mail.

Levy land racing towards the employers, IOC proud to be at the Trailblazer DfE NEC conf to talk shop with express employers. Delivery targets for the express delivery level two and pending degree apprentice level 6 for Express Manager. Lomas was on hand to showcase the logistics journey of a pineapple around the world to free home delivery at final mile with DfE David Sampson.

Carl Creswell, Deputy Director DfE opened a full house at the NEC to applause of employers from across the UK.

A big thank-you for helping improve apprenticeships. This is a big programme, over 200 trailblazer groups. During this transition of change I thank you for employment input. Many DfE managers are moving into the Institute for Apprenticeships (IFA). 40% of frameworks turned off as the new standards come in. We are working to all starts of standards by 2020.



David Sampson. Process and policy update, from phase one to NEC today. Presently rejecting 60% of submissions, new relationship managers will help address this number. We expect to publish new templates in the next few days for a standards and assessment plan. There will be great guidance on detail for submission. We are looking for solutions to fast track plans for delivery. Process will streamline technical education into 15 routes, transport is one of these routes providing clear high quality pathway to skilled employment.

We don’t believe qualification needs to be in a standard. The end point assessment may address this. We no longer accept standards with qualification in development.


Ana Osbourne. Deputy Director approvals for Institute for Apprenticeships.

Skilling the workforce, a new green paper on industrial strategy, skills need to be right. The right skills for our future. IFA will be a guardian of quality and standards. Use your relationship manager as a gateway into the IFA for your sector, transport and logistics.
