Newly designed Apprenticeships (often known as Trailblazers) are delivered predominantly in the workplace and designed to ensure Apprentices have the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to effectively and consistently work to national standards.

Trailblazer Apprenticeships:

  • are developed by Employers as part of a Trailblazer Development group
  • contain a standard against which apprentices must demonstrate knowledge, behaviours and competence
  • have an end point assessment that, when deemed ready by their employer, the apprentice must complete
  • last, at least, 12 continuous months
  • will require the demonstration of Maths and English skills.

BIIAB is approved as an End Point Assessment organisation for specific apprenticeship standards, with more applications in process with the SFA. To find out which apprenticeships BIIAB is currently approved to deliver End Point Assessments for please click here.
