ACRIB calls on industry for apprenticeship feedback

Employers can now get involved in owning and leading the design of future refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump apprenticeships, says ACRIB

ACRIB, the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board (which represents industry groups B&ES RACHP Group, FETA, IOR, CIBSE, ARC, BFFF, FSDF & CRT associations) is calling for further industry input to drive forward changes in apprenticeship standards

The association is currently working with employers across the sector to lead the process (see attached infographic) - the new standards will replace existing apprenticeships and qualifications by 2017.

In a statement it said: “An RACHP Apprenticeship Discussion Paper has been produced by the Institute of Refrigeration which highlights the suggested core principles.

Please respond to this based on your experience of training new entrants and the range of job activities they need to be involved in.

All views are welcomed and will be taken into account for a summary of key requirements to be submitted to Government in January 2015.

See the IOR Discussion Paper and consultation information at www.ior.org.uk/trailblazer

Comments are invited up to 12th December 2014 and you can also use the feedback form to join an employer stakeholder group if you want to have continued involvement in this work.”
