Apprentice Assessment Plan Approved

The apprenticeship assessment plan for fire, emergency and security systems has gained approval by the government. The standard for apprenticeships details how apprentices will be assessed and sets out the contents for the final examination undertaken in the last three months of the apprenticeship.

Pat Allen, director at Abel Alarm and lead employer on the fire, emergency and security systems Trailblazer group states: “I’m delighted that the government has approved the assessment plan, and in doing so have enabled our industry to complete the final step towards having a structured apprenticeship – something we have needed for many years – that fits the needs of employers and their businesses.”

Trailblazers are groups of employers that work together to design apprenticeship standards and assessment approaches to increase the number of apprentices and the quality of apprenticeships in the UK, which is suffering a skills gap in engineering, according to many experts.

In August, Assured welcomed two new apprentice engineers to the team. They have spent the last three weeks out training with our installation team and will enrol at Barnsley College in September. This is the first time apprentices have joined the Assured team therefore, we are extremely excited to have them on board and aid them in their development to become competent engineers.
