The Trailblazer apprenticeship is part of the UK Government’s Trailblazer programme that aims to establish new standards for apprenticeships. The Trailblazer programme is committed to reaching three million apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. The overall objective of the new apprenticeship standards is to ensure that apprenticeships are truly employer led. Standards are therefore designed by employers (Trailblazer groups) to meet their needs, the needs of their sector and the economy more widely. Each apprenticeship standard has an assessment plan produced by “Trailblazers”
Apprenticeships already deliver real benefits to business and young people: new reforms aim to boost these even further. Individual apprentices achieve higher levels of qualification and increase their own employment prospects, productivity and wages.
London Metropolitan College is actively engaged in developing Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards and an approved training provider for delivering “Associate Project Manager” and “Project Controls Technician” apprenticeships. We have developed a unique approach to deliver these apprenticeships which includes training (Technical, Occupational and Software), assessment gateway review and end-point assessment. This approach develops competency and creates an environment that enables it to attract, develop and retain individuals who can contribute towards business objectives.
We currently offer three Trailblazer Apprenticeships Project Manager Degree (Level 6), Associate Project Manager (Level 4) and Project Controls Technician (Level 3).
The apprenticeship standards for these apprenticeships are approved for delivery and more details such as delivery approach can be seen by visiting the relevant pages.
