What is this?
This quality framework provides a structure for external review of Modern Apprenticeship off-the-job training.
The external review of Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) by Education Scotland builds upon and
complements Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) current quality
assurance arrangements. These arrangements require all non-college
training providers to demonstrate they are meeting SDS quality standards
as set out in the SDS Quality Assurance Framework. SDS takes assurance
of delivery within colleges from Education Scotland’s college
inspections. The external review arrangements encompass off-the-job
training approaches within MA programmes and focus solely on the
contribution made by training providers and the quality of the training
