News… TTA Approved as Apprenticeship Trailblazers

Thank you for attending our working group!

Following the Government’s decision to replace the current Apprenticeship Frameworks by 2020, with a move away from current pathways already begun; in 2015 TTA submitted an EOI on?behalf of our Members to set up a Working Group of Contractors to develop new Standards and Assessment Plans for the Trailblazer Apprenticeship for a Wall and Floor Tile Fixer.

The Working Group has been given the go ahead and met?for the first time in February to kick off this project.? The Companies will be?working with the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), training providers and developers to put these together?working closely with and supported by?The Tile?Association.

The TTA are keen to promote good quality workmanship and standards in a safe environment, and to ensure that everyone in the industry is working to British, EU and ISO Standards.

The Government is keen that more high quality apprenticeships are created to meet the needs of employers and apprentices, and help drive up growth and productivity across the economy.

We will keep you updated on progress!
