Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education restarts route reviews of technical education

Published: 25/09/2020

logo of IfATE the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical EducationThe Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education (IfATE) has restarted its wide-ranging programme of route reviews. These reviews examine certain technical education programmes, such as apprenticeships and T Levels, to see where there are opportunities to improve them.

The reviews were postponed in March due to Covid-19. However, as providers, employers and awarding institutions have adapted to enable them to continue working during the pandemic, IfATE has restarted the process.

Additionally, route reviews in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector are now seeking input from business on how they have coped with apprenticeships during the pandemic.

An engineering and manufacturing route review workshop will be held on 8 October, run by partner organisation Enginuity. To register, please contact to express your interest in attending.

The Institute’s Chief Executive, Jennifer Coupland, said:

“It is great news that the route reviews are resuming. They are incredibly important to ensuring that apprenticeships and wider technical education remains up to date and vital for the training of staff across the economy.

For more information on the Engineering and Manufacturing route review, please see the IfATE website.
