3 Introduction 1. The Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning (ASCL) Act introduces the Specification of Apprenticeship Standards for England (SASE). The SASE sets out the minimum requirements to be included in a recognised English Apprenticeship framework. 2. The SASE-Guidance includes guidance for framework developers on meeting the SASE requirements. English Issuing Authorities must have regard to the SASE-Guidance in reaching a decision on whether a framework submission complies with the SASE. 3. To ensure that apprentices can complete Apprenticeships started against existing frameworks prior to April 2011, the Secretary of State will allow for existing frameworks to be treated as Apprenticeship frameworks issued under the ASCL Act. From 13th April 2011 new starts against such frameworks must be explicitly authorised by the National Apprenticeship Service.
