Updates to the SASW Improving Operational Performance Apprenticeship framework for Wales

Semta has updated the Improving Operational Performance (IOP) Apprenticeship framework for Wales, by introducing a series of level 3 Technical Certificates which have been added to the Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) level 2 pathway.  These include:

  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1113/9
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Cycle Maintenance (QCF) - 501/0988/1
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1121/8
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Engineering and Technology (Progressive) (QCF) – 501/1419/0
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1130/9
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Equipment Maintenance Engineering (QCF) – 600/1026/5
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1131/0
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Maintenance Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1112/7
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology (Progressive) (QCF) – 501/1422/0
  • EAL Level 3 Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology (QCF) – 501/1155/3

These additions have been made with the approval and support of the Welsh Government to benefit apprentices who wish to transfer to the Engineering Manufacture framework at level 3 after completing the IOP – PEO2 pathway. 

By following these new pathways, apprentices can meet the Technical Certificate requirement for both frameworks through a single qualification and can also claim recognition of prior learning for the PEO units that appear in the NVQ Extended Diplomas at level 3.

PEO units are included within the NVQ Extended Diplomas to ensure that direct entrants at level 3 don’t miss out on basic engineering training.
