Our industry expertise and data, allows us to bring together individuals, educators, employers and policymakers, informing better decisions about the engineering skills the UK needs to succeed internationally, today and tomorrow.

Since October 2013, we’ve been actively working with groups of engineering and advanced manufacturing sector employers, to ensure that there are new sector-specific standards in place for apprenticeships.

Enginuity represents over 145,000 companies in the engineering and advanced manufacturing sector. Through this initiative, the aim is to ensure that every apprentice in the UK is fully enrolled on an employer designed and approved scheme of learning and development.

Each new apprenticeship standard includes:

  • Apprenticeship duration
  • Job role profile
  • Entry requirements and expected behaviours
  • Technical skills and knowledge requirements
  • A description of the learning and training phases
  • Assessment requirements
  • Employer sign off procedures
  • External recognition by professional institutions

The initiative means that engineering technicians in the aerospace, aviation, automotive, maritime, defence and wider advanced manufacturing and engineering sectors, now use one standard and assessment plan at Level 3, the Engineering Technician apprenticeship standard has one funding cap and one End-Point Assessment model.

The benefits of this approach are:

  • Simplification and less confusion over the choice of standard
  • Economies of scale
  • Every apprentice develops a baseline of core engineering knowledge and skills – supporting transferability across the business and the wider engineering sector
  • A more flexible workforce with the ability to build upon that common baseline of core engineering knowledge and skills as business needs change
  • A reduction in the proliferation of standards
