A Call for Employers to Shape Future Training Of Welding Apprenticeships

11 May 2021 2:43 PM | Anonymous

The Welding Institute and The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education are working together to encourage employers to help shape the future training of welding apprentices by joining the employer ‘trailblazer’ group that will be responsible for reviewing the level 2 general welder apprenticeship.

As the leading professional engineering institution for the registration of welding and joining personnel, The Welding Institute advocates the need for employer support while developing the future training of welding apprentices.

With a high demand for this employer support across industry, our Professional Membership and Accreditation Manager, Lois Appleyard has offered the following statement:

“It’s vital that we ensure this apprenticeship continues to meet all the latest skills needs and regulations. As a trailblazer, you can play an important role with helping apprentices get the most from their training and supporting them onto long and successful careers.”

Deputy Director for the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, Jonathan Mitchell, also explained:

“General welding is highly valued right across industry. It’s so important that apprentices learn all the right knowledge, skills and behaviours and we rely on our trailblazer employers to tell us what they should be. This is a wonderful opportunity to help shape future training.”
