Standard of the Week – Improvement Practitioner

24 August, 2023

The Level 4 Improvement Practitioner apprenticeship standard has been approved for delivery since 27th February 2018.

Improvement Practitioners use a blend of Lean and Six Sigma, project and change management principles and tools to identify and lead the delivery of change across organisational functions and processes. Typically, Practitioners lead smaller projects and/or play a key supporting role in a larger programme tackling issues that may require swift problem solving, or re-occurring challenges that require in-depth analysis and the implementation of a range of effective and sustainable countermeasures. They are the focal point for all stakeholders and responsible for communication throughout a project.

There are currently 54 registered training providers for this standard.

Please note that from 1st August 2023, the Department for Education has merged RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) and RoEPAO (Register of End Point Assessment Organisations) and is now called APAR (Apprenticeship Provider and Assessment Register).

You can access information about applying to the APAR as an apprenticeship training provider here.
