City & Guilds in collaboration with specialist engineering awarding organisation EAL were awarded the contracts to deliver three engineering and manufacturing T Levels, following a tender process. This is following the success of our winning partnership to deliver construction qualifications in Wales and the T Level in Construction: Building Services Engineering last year. They are:
- Engineering and Manufacturing: Manufacturing, Processing and Control
- Engineering and Manufacturing: Maintenance, Installation and Repair
- Engineering and Manufacturing: Design and Development
As a response to the COVID crisis, all exams due to take place in schools and colleges this summer were cancelled. Ofqual was tasked with establishing two temporary regulatory frameworks – one for General Qualifications (GQs) and one for Vocational and Technical Qualifications (VTQs) to allow awarding organisations and exam boards to assign a grade to as many learners as possible this summer in a fair and consistent way, enabling those learners to progress to the next stage of their learning or employment with qualifications that would be recognised by educational establishments and employers.
The Institute’s apprentice panel is now recruiting for new members for 2020 and beyond. We need members to represent all 15 ‘routes’ and from occupations in levels 2 to 7. If you know of an apprentice in your organisation or elsewhere who should apply, please do share the link below with them and encourage them to apply by 13 January 2020.
EAL triumphed in style at the recent Federation of Awarding Bodies 5th annual awards, taking home two accolades at the prestigious ceremony. Over 230 awarding and assessment specialists gathered at the event to celebrate the best of the British qualifications and assessments industry.
Our parent company Enginuity is a partner of Project DRIVES, the aim of the project is to design and deliver human capital solutions through the establishment of an Automotive Sector Skills Alliance, covering all levels of the value chain (vehicle production, suppliers, sales and aftermarket services).
To do this, we need your insight and expertise within the sector and would like to invite you to contribute your views via a short online survey.
The survey will inform DRIVES to develop concrete actions such as mapping and developing training, to satisfy short and medium-term skills need to support the overall sectoral strategy and deliver policy recommendations for the automotive sector.
The application for Reasonable Adjustments/Special Considerations has been reviewed and updated and is now available for completion via our Smarter Touch system.
You can now indicate which of the requirements are needed to enable the learner to have the best possible support when undertaking EAL examinations, by ticking the relevant box.
From September 2021 City & Guilds and EAL will be the sole provider of a new suite of fundable Construction and Building Services Engineering qualifications in Wales and we invite you to be part of the consultation process through a series of events, to review and feedback your views on the draft documents and their content.
All stakeholders within the Building Service and Construction sector within Wales such as employers, trade bodies, colleges and training providers bodies are invited to participate.
Our parent company, Semta's Standards and Frameworks department are leading a review of the following apprenticeship frameworks:
