Apprenticeship Standards & Assessment Plans

The government’s plans to improve skills and productivity in England through Apprenticeships reform are well under way. These reforms are replacing the existing Apprenticeship frameworks with employer-defined Apprenticeship Standards. NSAR has been working with various transport and engineering trailblazers groups on the development of new rail and transport related apprenticeship standards and relevant end point assessment plans. 

NSAR has an in-depth understanding of the current apprenticeships landscape, with a team of experts facilitating the design of the latest apprenticeship standards relevant for the rail sector and the wider transport industry.


NSAR is supporting bus, coach, tram and rail employers in the development of apprenticeship standards from Level 3 and 4.

These apprenticeship standards are designed to be more flexible and focused to address the current, and future needs and challenges faced by the transport industry.
