What is an Apprentice progress review form?

The employer should aim to hold progress review meetings with the apprentice on a regular basis, ideally quarterly, but they may need to be at shorter intervals early on and adjusted as the apprenticeship progresses.

Use these progress reviews to encourage collaboration and to set out what is required of the employer to play an active role in helping their apprentice to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of them to be successful.

What are the best practice implementation milestones / timescales?

What legal and best practice aspects should employers be aware of?

  • Discrimination: The employer must ensure that the progress review process does not discriminate against the apprentice based on any protected characteristics, such as age, disability, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation. The employer should ensure that the review process is fair and objective and that all apprentices are treated equally.

  • Health and Safety: The employer must ensure that the review process is conducted in a safe and healthy environment, and that any risks are identified and addressed. The employer should also ensure that the apprentice has received adequate training and instruction on any tools or equipment used during the review process.

  • Data Protection: The employer must comply with data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), when collecting, storing, and processing personal data about the apprentice during the review process. The employer should obtain the apprentice's consent to collect and process their personal data and ensure that it is only used for the purpose of the review.

  • Confidentiality: The employer must ensure that any information shared during the review process is kept confidential and only disclosed to those who have a legitimate need to know. The employer should obtain the apprentice's consent before sharing any sensitive or confidential information about them.

  • Apprenticeship Standards: The employer must ensure that the review process complies with the apprenticeship standards set out by the relevant industry sector or professional body. The review should assess the apprentice's progress against the agreed standards and identify any areas where further training or support is required.
