This framework, including an Apprenticeship (level 3) and a Higher Apprenticeship (level 4) has been developed to support those who are employed in the information, advice and guidance related services sector in Wales. It is aimed at those working with a range of clients and agencies, including but not limited to support agencies and other social support organisations. The framework will provide individuals with the skills they need to deliver high quality information, advice and/or guidance related services (dependent on role), help them develop in their role, and support progression into supervisory, management and/or higher professional roles.
The qualification within the framework combines knowledge and competence elements which are assessed and certificated separately and will ensure successful completers have the breadth and depth of job skills and knowledge that are applicable to their role, along with the underlying skills that enable them to operate as effective employees in a range of job roles within the Information, Advice and Guidance sector.
