The Skills Minister has invited the Industry Apprentice Council (IAC) to be a part of government discussions on the future of Apprenticeships.
Matthew Hancock MP has invited the IAC to a round table on government’s response to the Richard Review of Apprenticeships, including the implementation of grading and end of point assessment, whether off-site learning should be mandatory and how employers can be supported to engage learners.
Mr Hancock said: “I would like to invite the Industry Apprentice Council to a round table on the Richard Review. As we have employers involved in a round table, as we have education organisations involved in a round table, I would like to invite the IAC to be involved too.”
EAL, the awarding organisation for industry qualifications, founded and supports the Industry Apprentice Council alongside IMI Awards, the leading awarding body for the retail motor industry.
EAL managing director Ann Watson said: “We are thrilled industry apprentices will input directly into the future of Apprenticeships in the UK. The round table discussions on government’s Richard Review consultation are an excellent opportunity for the IAC’s members to have their say on government policy and help revolutionise the vocational pathway for learners across the country.”
