The Apprentice Transition Plan is to support apprentices who have been made redundant as a result of the economic impact of COVID-19.

As part of support measures we are working with modern apprenticeship learning providers to offer additional help for apprentices who have been made redundant as a result of the economic impact of COVID-19. The Apprentice Transition Plan (ATP) service has been developed to help redundant apprentices to the next steps in their career journey. The service is available from 1 December 2020.

Additional funding is available to support providers to deliver the service. Providers who wish to deliver the part of the service which is not about continued certification must have registered assessors who have completed specific training modules which are hosted on the SDS provider learning management system.

This page includes further details on the ATP service, including on funding and eligibility. You will find information and resources to support delivery of ATP services. This includes key documentation, such as the ATP Stage 4 Resource, as well links to the webinar and e-learning modules that are part of the compulsory training in order to deliver ATP services.

The Modern Apprenticeship Conditions and Specification 2020-2021 have been updated to include requirements relating to the Apprentice Transition Plan.

If you require further support relating to the Apprentice Transition Plan, please contact our support mailbox below.  

If you are unable to deliver the service and have redundant apprentices that are not managing to secure new employment, we would ask you to make your apprentices aware of the serviceIf they think that this is something that could help them, please refer them to SDS through the ATP mailbox and we can then ensure that a third-party provider supports them.
