Making sure that you know what you are entitled to
ERR ensures that apprentices understand both their own and their employer’s rights and responsibilities under Employment Law and other legislation.
There are different ways that this needs to be evidenced to enable achievement of the Apprenticeship, some frameworks will specify how this must be done, others will allow you a choice. The options are clearly set out in the ERR section of the Apprenticeship detail pages of the website and Apprenticeships Catalogue.
In some cases ERR can be covered within the knowledge or competence qualifications. This may be through specific mandatory or optional units, or it may be embedded across the qualification.
Standalone ERR Qualification
In other cases ERR can be evidenced through the achievement of a separate qualification.
In the Logistics and Health and Adult Social Care sectors there are requirements for the following specific ERR qualifications:
- Gateway Qualifications Level 2 Award In Employee Rights and Responsibilities in the Logistics Industry (QCF)
- Gateway Qualifications Level 2 Award In Employment Responsibilities and Rights in Health, Social Care, Children and Young People’s Settings (QCF)
In other sectors the following more general ERR qualification can be used:
Where achievement of the ERR qualification is mandatory, the cost of this is included in the Apprenticeship package price. If achievement of the qualification is optional, the qualification can be added at a cost of £16 per learner.
Evidenced through a Workbook
Learners can also complete ERR evidence via workbooks from the relevant Sector Skills Council or Standard Setting Body. Where this is an option we have provided links to the relevant websites where the workbooks can be downloaded or ordered.
