Download the IT and telecommunications frameworks

e-skills UK is the official issuing authority for the modern apprenticeship frameworks for IT and telecommunications. These are developed in conjunction with a wide group of employers and cover a range of job roles and levels.

Level 2 and 3: suitable for roles including IT technical support, software developer, web developer, database administrator, telecoms engineer or network planner.

Level 4: suitable for roles including IT consultancy, system operation, system management, software developer, web developer, database architect, telecoms engineer, network planning and control or systems architecture.

Any questions on the frameworks, please contact apprenticeships@e-skills.com.

Request a certificate

Once an apprentice has completed the requirements laid out in the modern apprenticeship frameworks, they’ve earned their certificate. You can request it on their behalf through MA Online.
