Technical Advanced Apprenticeship Project

Posted: 26th June 2007

The Construction Industry Council within ConstructionSkills and in conjunction with QCA and SSDA, is currently managing a project to explore the potential for introducing Technical Advanced Apprenticeships in construction. This will be a self-standing ‘qualification’ for apprentices, with content reflecting the views of sector bodies and other key stakeholders.
Pilot trials of the proposed apprenticeship model[s] will be initiated with sector employers, awarding bodies, colleges and assessment centers in Autumn 2007.
The new Technical Apprenticeship Qualification programme will provide benefits to employers and colleges as well as a structured approach to maximise college teaching and related workplace learning.
The proposed model[s] could potentially lead to candidates embarking on a career pathway that would lead to Technician Membership of Professional Institutions within the Built Environment sector.
Your involvement in this project is key to its success; we welcome participation from employers, colleges, assessment centers and Professional Institutions in the upcoming pilot trials.
