With over ten years’ experience leading the development of apprenticeship standards for the engineering and consultancy industry, Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC) is uniquely placed to provide advice for any employer hiring – or considering hiring – apprentices.
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.
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.
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.
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.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We have been inspired by our Apprentices. They are a breath of fresh air to the office and their enthusiasm and passion for learning has become infectious.
Jane Milligan HR Director at Clancy consulting
Our apprentices aren’t treated differently to any other employee. The only difference is there’s a higher level of support around them to help them succeed professionally, academically and personally.
Claire Oliver, Head of HR at Troup Bywaters + Anders
Apprenticeships help to diversify our workforce and encourage new people into the industry. TAC ensures our industry apprenticeships are of a high quality.
