Lift & Escalator Trailblazer Group history
The Apprentice Framework system, in England, ceased to be available for registrations in 2017 and were replaced by Apprenticeships Standards, where the specification and requirements have been drawn up by employer groups.
As part of the Government’s employer driven Trailblazer Strategy a group of employers from the UK Lift Industry, together with other key industry stakeholders, working on behalf of the sector, have been leading the design of the Apprenticeship Standards. The Trailblazer Groups are calling for the UK Lift and Escalator Industry and key stakeholders to get involved to have their say on the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours that an Engineer in the UK Lift Industry should display on completion of a vocational programme of learning/ training. This represents an exciting opportunity for employers to shape an apprenticeship standard to ensure the continuity of engineering excellence within the industry for the future.
The Lift and Escalator employer group has so far completed the creation of two Apprenticeship Standards for the engineering sector detailed below.
ST0251 LV2 STAIRLIFT, PLATFORM LIFT, SERVICE LIFT ELECTROMECHANIC. January 2019.
ST0252 LV3 LIFT AND ESCALATOR ELECTROMECHANIC. March 2020.
