Trailblazers are employer-led groups in common sectors rewriting the Apprenticeship standards for one or more job roles in their sector. The standards employers create will gradually replace the existing frameworks that current Apprenticeships are based on. Some of the new standards include; Network Engineer, Software Developer, Infrastructure, Digital Marketer with more standards being made available each month. Once a new standard is in place the outdated framework which is replaces will be discontinued as soon as it is practical to do so.

By putting employers in the driving seat for apprenticeship development, the Government aims to establish a simplified structure of apprenticeships which provide people with the correct workplace skills relevant to businesses and industry.
