We've just launched a new qualification for the Level 3 Plumbing and Domestic Heating Technician apprenticeship standard.
New guidance has been issued by the Education and Skills Funding Agency to inform training providers, employers and apprentices about the need for, and importance of initial assessment (IA) and recognition of prior learning (PL).
Guidance on how employers and training providers should meet the 20% off-the-job training requirement for apprentices has recently been updated to help you determine whether an activity counts as off-the-job training as well as some best practice examples and myth busters.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have issued a safety alert that states any welding activity producing fumes must be managed appropriately.
The EAL Level 1 Introduction to Welding Fume Hazard Control (601/8138/2) has been developed in consultation with college, training associations and industry to ensure learners will be provided with the fundamental knowledge to manage welding fumes appropriately.
EAL is taking part in a project to capture examples of the use of technology in the assessment of vocational qualifications.
We want to capture as many examples as possible from our qualifications and we are sure our centres have plenty of examples to share.
The best examples will be compiled into a publication to be shared with the whole UK sector.
