Apprenticeship Completion

SummitSkills is responsible for issuing apprenticeship completion certificates to colleges and training providers. Candidates are uploaded onto a system called ACE for England, ACW for Wales and MA online for Scotland.

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.
