Instructus to take on issuing & certification

As you are aware SummitSkills will be closing at the end of March this year. To ensure that the critical activities required in regard to Apprenticeship Frameworks continue beyond that point the Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standard (FISSS) have been working with SummitSkills to ensure that Apprenticeship Framework management and  Apprenticeship Framework certification functions continue into the future.  

The FISSS Board met last week and agreed to ask Instructus to take this forward. SummitSkills will be working with Instructus over the next few weeks to manage a smooth transition. The aim is that Training Providers notice no change in the service SummitSkills currently deliver and that the existing service continues as normal.  

Instructus is a well-established Issuing and Certification Body and currently certify approximately 80,000 apprenticeships a year. 

Instructus will work with SummitSkills to speak to all the major trade bodies and training providers to understand their needs going forward and reassure them that the normal service will continue on the current basis.
