TAC 2 / For employers


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 working with, or thinking of working with, apprentices.

TAC can help any ACE and EIC member with their apprenticeship needs.

As well as browsing the extensive advice in our Knowledge Hub, ACE and EIC members can contact Kimberley 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.


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 Kimberley Murphy today.


TAC has supported the development of eight apprenticeship standards working with a range of employers including AECOM, Arup, Atkins, Mott MacDonald, Waterman Group, and WSP in the UK.

TAC has extensive experience of facilitating their development, securing funding and even reviewing existing standards.

Contact Caroline Sudworth today to see how we can help.


The scheme usually requires a minimum of 30 applicants. However, ACE through TAC is acting as a facilitating body and as such can collectively make applications on members’ behalf, no matter their size.
