Consultation deadline nears for transport planning apprenticeship

04 December 2018

The transport planning community is being urged to respond by next Monday to a consultation on how a new transport planner (integrated degree) apprenticeship standard will be assessed. 

The standard was published in early November on the Institute for Apprenticeships’ website. In order to utilise the standard, an employer ‘Trailblazer Group’ must develop and submit an End Point Assessment (EPA) plan. 

Keith Mitchell, director of community development & infrastructure at consultant Peter Brett, now part of Stantec, said: “This [the EPA plan] is a document written for universities in their role as end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs), who need to know how the EPA for this apprenticeship must operate. It will also be of interest to transport planner apprentices and their employers.”

The proposed EPA plan and consultation can be found on the TAC website at: www.tacnet.co.uk

Comments and responses are invited via email to [email protected]. The consultation began on 27 November and feedback is required by Monday 10 December.

The apprenticeship has been developed as an integrated degree apprenticeship, incorporating: on-programme academic learning; workplace learning and assessment; and the independent End Point Assessment (EPA). 

Full-time apprentices will typically spend five years working towards the apprenticeship standard, with a minimum of 20 per cent off-the-job training. ?
