Information for apprenticeship standard setting bodies

The Engineering Council is committed to supporting apprenticeships that lead to professional registration.  

We are involved with a number of key initiatives to ensure that engineering apprenticeship outcomes are aligned with the standards of professional competence and commitment, set out in two key documents:

To support you in the development and assessment of engineering apprenticeships that meet the profession’s requirements, we have developed an approval handbook. Approved status is awarded to apprenticeships that provide the necessary education and initial professional development for professional registration as an EngTech or ICTTech

Achieving approved status allows you to demonstrate that your apprenticeship has been independently peer reviewed by a licensed professional engineering institution, to the standards set by the Engineering Council. Approval is central to ensuring that your apprenticeships meet the needs of individuals their employers and society.

Currently approved apprenticeships are listed on the Engineering Council’s Recognised Courses Database. The Engineering Council Approved Apprenticeship logo is available to use on promotional materials directly associated with the approved apprenticeship standard and on associated website pages.
