Certification and Registration


Universal Apprentice Declaration and Authorisation Form 

The new universal form covers declarations for the apprentice to:

• confirm the existence of an Apprenticeship Agreement between themselves and their employer (or that Alternative Completion Conditions apply)
• confirm their achievement of all ERR requirements
• confirm their achievement of all 6 PLTS
• confirm that they have received at least the minimum levels of GLH set out in their framework and have undertaken training both on and off the job

They also have to sign to give their authority for the claimant, named on the form, to make a claim, on their behalf,  for their Apprenticeship completion certificate.

Requirements for Transferable Skills in SASE Frameworks

The only evidence accepted for Transferable Skills Achievement (ie Functional Skills etc) - and therefore claims for apprenticeship completion certificates - is the qualifications identified in the appropriate SASE framework document. These legally required qualifications are specified in accordance with the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children & Learning Act 2009.  A full explanation is available here.
