The Technician Apprenticeship Consortium brings together engineering consultancy firms to enable them to meet their business needs through the recruitment and training of technician apprentices.
The Consortium aims to:
- Ensure that there is a valued work based route to professional status for aspiring engineers including those who are currently under-represented within the sector such as females, ethnic minorities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
- Increase the numbers of young people taking up this route and the number of companies appreciating the benefits it brings and so committing to providing technician apprenticeship places
- Broaden the availability across a range of engineering disciplines through using the common base of UK-SPEC to compile a suite of linked qualifications working with sector skills councils, professional institutions and awarding bodies.
