Three-month "flexi-job apprenticeship" arrangements introduced

Implementation date: 6 April 2022

The Apprenticeships (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 (SI 2022/86) allow apprentices undertaking specified apprenticeship standards to move between different arrangements throughout their apprenticeship. An apprentice can complete an alternative English apprenticeship by entering into a series of arrangements of at least three months' duration with separate employers. When put together, the arrangements must total a minimum of 12 months.

This will enable employers to engage apprentices under the pilot of "portable flexi-job apprenticeships".
