Our parent company Semta is the organising partner for 13 WorldSkills UK engineering competitions designed to equip apprentices and students with the world-class skills needed to help UK businesses better compete globally.
EAL is taking part in a project to capture examples of the use of technology in the assessment of vocational qualifications.
We want to capture as many examples as possible from our qualifications and we are sure our centres have plenty of examples to share.
The best examples will be compiled into a publication to be shared with the whole UK sector.
EAL is a proud sponsor of the Semta Skills Awards which celebrate the talented individuals and companies that make the advanced manufacturing and engineering sector one of the highest skilled sectors in the UK.
Entries are open until midnight on 30th November and we know as a valued EAL centre the fantastic work you do in delivering training to support employers and bring out the best in your learners so it is time for you to nominate and have your time to shine.
Our parent company Semta is leading a review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Marine Engineering. Semta is now requesting feedback from employers, training providers and key stakeholders who work in the sector.
The current suites of NOS and qualifications were developed in partnership with employers and other appropriate organisations across the UK. NOS set out the skills, knowledge and understanding required by employers to undertake a particular task or job role to a nationally recognised level of competence, helping formalise training requirements for employers and employees across the UK. They also form the basis of all vocational qualifications including those used in Apprenticeship Frameworks.
When EAL's Compliance and Regulation team investigate cases of possible maladministration, particularly in regards to incorrect certificate claims, late registration and late certification requests and the outcome is 'maladministration proven'; centres are advised of the outcome via an email and confirms that the maladministration is recorded against the centre profile.
