ADVICE

As well as browsing the extensive advice in our FAQs, ACE and EIC members can contact Kimberly Murphy today for free advice on any aspect of employing or managing an apprentice.

No question is too basic. TAC can also share best-practice from other employers and recommend specific educational providers who have been identified for their excellence and care.

REGIONAL MEETINGS

Two to three times a year TAC holds regular meetings which bring together employers, professional institutions and regionally based training providers. The open regional forums are an informal way for apprenticeship employers to share best practice, keep abreast of industry developments, and network.

We host meetings for London & the South EastMidlands, the North and South West. Interested in attending? Contact Kimberly Murphy today.

TRAILBLAZER

Trailblazer groups are made up of employers based in England, professional bodies, training providers and trade associations that come together to create new apprenticeship standards and end point assessment plans. Employers are able join existing groups, or form a new one if the standard does not exist.

TAC currently facilitates five trailblazer groups on behalf of engineering consultancy sector employers. Contact Caroline Sudworth today to see how we can help.

KICKSTART SCHEME

The scheme provides funding to employers to create job placements for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit.

ACE through TAC, is acting as a facilitating body and as such can collectively make applications on members’ behalf, no matter their size.
