What is the difference between framework types?

  • Current frameworks - the latest issue of SASE/SASW compliant frameworks
  • Archive frameworks - previous issues of SASE/SASW compliant
  • Legacy frameworks - THESE FRAMEWORKS WERE ALL WITHDRAWN FROM DECEMBER 2011. These frameworks were created using the Apprenticeship Blueprint, which was used before the SASE and SASW were developed. They were “deemed frameworks“ because they were deemed to be compliant with the ASCL Act from 6th April 2011, but they were not compliant with the SASE or SASW. They were deemed to allow apprentices who were using them to receive a certificate. If you are an apprentice who started on one of these legacy frameworks before 6th April 2011 you are allowed to finish it and receive a certificate. AFO is a repository and as such, legacy frameworks are available here so that users of the website can see what an apprentice is required to do to complete one of these frameworks.
