Open for industry consultation - Apprenticeship Standard and EPA Plan

Revised Scaffolder Apprenticeship Standard ST0359 and End Point Assessment Plan open for industry consultation.

After many months of meetings and working committees the Scaffolding Trailblazer Group has completed it’s review of the Scaffolding apprenticeship standard and EPA.

The Group, made up of Scaffolding Employers, Training Providers, End Point Assessment Organisations, IFATE and CISRS representation has confirmed that they are now happy with the revised content, as such it is now time to consult with industry.

It is hoped that the new standard could attract increased funding levels, which would encourage more providers to take up the delivery of apprenticeships, or for existing providers to increase their apprentice training capacity.

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE) has released the revised Scaffolder Apprenticeship Standard ST0359 and End Point Assessment Plan for industry consultation today.

Tony Barry, CISRS Compliance Manager said “CISRS, as part of the trailblazer scaffolder standard working group, we have been tasked with circulating the revised standard to the wider scaffolding industry. We have alerted NASC, ANSC and SA directly and have also contacted Scaffmag to help us spread the word.  You will find further information on how to comment at the CISRS website.”  See the link below
