Have your say on apprenticeships

The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering and SummitSkills have launched a survey covering apprenticeships and professional recognition.

The survey explores the present apprenticeship system for the plumbing and heating sector.

It also aims to identify support among micro SMEs for professional recognition, such as Engineering Council registration.

This initiative is part of the research project funded by the Gatsby Foundation.

The CIPHE and SummitSkills are being supported by an Industry Stakeholder Group of trade associations, training organisations and a number of key employers.

CIPHE chief executive officer Kevin Wellman said: “We are urging as many people as possible who want to have a say in the future of apprenticeships to go online and fill in the questionnaire. This is your chance to help shape apprenticeships for the plumbing and heating industry.”

The findings from the research will feed into the development of the employer-driven Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standard for Plumbing and Domestic Heating. An update on this will be given at the House of Lords on 29 July along with the results of the survey.
