We are pleased to announce a further £90,000 available through the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) for additional joint practice development projects under the Outstanding, Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA) National Technical Skills Programme.
Our new Engineering Talent platform will provide an innovative and unique way to recruit learners and deliver training online. Designed as an interactive digital learning environment, centre and employers will be able to engage and enrich their learners with resources relevant to their apprenticeship. The platform will also measure and support the 20% off-the-job training requirement for the apprenticeship standards.
WorldSkills UK engineering skills competition heats are now taking place across the country until mid-July.
Now that levy funding can be used for competitions and participation counts towards the 20% off-the-job training requirement for apprenticeships, there’s never been a better time for apprentices to get involved.
We have launched new practice exams for Functional Skills English and Maths for Levels 1 and 2, which include real candidate responses and examiner feedback.
The practice exams are now available to schedule onscreen via Online Services.
