  • Employers and training organisations must decide together if the apprentice is ready for assessment by judging their learning and behaviours at the gateway stage, we can offer support with this if required.
  • On completion of their apprenticeship, apprentices can apply for EngTech professional registration with the Institution, a globally recognised title which shows their skills and experience are of the highest standard and progress to IEng or CEng when they are ready. EngTech members receive a range of benefits, including support with their CPD.
