Apprenticeships 2017

The IRRV is committed to supporting Trailblazer Apprenticeships in its sector. While the initiative for writing new Apprenticeship standards lies with groups of employers, the Institute will assist in this process where invited. Trailblazer groups are also responsible for commissioning training and finding an assessment organisation. The Institute is a subcontractor for Apprenticeship training, and is planning to join the registers of Apprenticeship Training Providers and of Apprenticeship Assessment Organisations at the earliest opportunity. Employer groups will therefore be able to access IRRV training or assessment if they so choose.
