The three are for: bus and coach technician; motor vehicle service and maintenance technician (heavy vehicle); and bus and coach engineering manager.
All three are now live on the People1st website at http://www.people1st.co.uk/Apprenticeship-services/Apprenticeship-Trailblazers/Bus,-coach-HGV.
The organiser for this trailblazer round – the Society of Operations Engineers, which includes the IRTE – is urging all those interested to access the consultation, read through the standards and complete the questionnaire, which is available as a word document download.
Once completed, participants are urged to email their completed questionnaires to email@example.com for consolidation and review by the trailblazer.
Response is required for a range of organisations and employers, particularly smaller employers, to confirm that the standards will work for the industry in the future.
Initial closing date is 8 April 2014, at which point the feedback will be analysed and reported back to the trailblazer.
Consultation will then recommence once the trailblazer has revised the documents as necessary.
