Lift + Escalator Trailblazer Group
The current Apprentice Frameworks will cease to be valid after 2017 and will be replaced by Trailblazer Apprenticeships, where the specification and requirements have been drawn up by employer groups.
Now the UK lift industry needs your feedback…
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 urges you to view the key Lift and Escalator Standard documents which accompany the survey; there are two standards representing two pathways. Please read the standards by clicking on the links below for each standard, then complete the surveys
The surveys will run until 14th March 2016.
