THE ECITB HAS DEVELOPED A COMPREHENSIVE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME FOR THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET. COMBINING COLLEGE LEARNING WITH WORK EXPERIENCE, ECITB APPRENTICESHIPS ARE THE BEST WAY TO ATTRACT AND DEVELOP YOUNG PEOPLE TO THE INDUSTRY.
There are two types of international apprenticeship:
The Foundation Apprenticeship and the first year of the Advanced Apprenticeship are spent ‘off the job’ in a training centre to cover specific skills training. The two years ‘on job’ training for the Advanced Apprenticeship takes place on site with periods of time spent within a workshop to balance the requirements of both the apprentice and the employer. On site the apprentice will work alongside a skilled craftsperson/supervisor to practice the skills they have already gained in the training centre and develop new ones.
International apprenticeships are available in a number of disciplines:
Instrument Pipefitting (Small Bore Tubing)
Steel Process Operations
Instrumentation & Controls Maintenance
Non Destructive Testing
Design & Draughting
Plant Layout & Design
BESPOKE APPRENTICESHIP SCHEME
The ECITB is also able to develop bespoke apprenticeship schemes for its international customers. These schemes are usually based upon existing ECITB apprenticeship frameworks with bespoke components relevant to the country in which the apprenticeship is being delivered. Additional units and qualifications can be added as required by the client and local qualification authority.
The additional units normally include:
These bespoke courses offer the additional benefits of being of flexible time duration with certification available for each qualification/training course.
