The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education is hosting a series of consultation events as part of the Engineering and Manufacturing Route Review and need your help to spread the word amongst your networks to encourage attendance to get their voices heard.

To ensure stakeholders at all levels across industry and education are equally represented, we are inviting employers, training providers and End-Point Assessment organisations interested in Engineering and Manufacturing (and across all sectors) to register to attend.

These five, free-to-register events offer all attendees a unique opportunity to shape the outcome of the route review and apprenticeship standards of the future. The fundamental aim is to ensure employers have a safe, competent and productive workforce and individuals enjoy purposeful, satisfying careers that begin with a high-quality apprenticeship.

We have agreed with IfATE a half-day event format designed to maximise attendee participation and minimise any disruption to the day-to-day operation of your business by ensuring that we are finished by 1300hrs.

At each event, the Institute will provide a brief update to participants of work in progress, but will mainly be there in a listening capacity. Which allows you to share your thoughts and reflections on a sector which is evolving rapidly to meet the pace of change and industrial digitalisation.

The events themselves will take place at easily accessible locations up and down the country on the following dates. Click on the links to secure your place:
