AutoRaise has announced that it is the first to achieve sign off for its Multi Skilled Apprenticeship Standard ‘end point assessment plan’.
The company has advised that there may be a short delay whilst it challenges its £9,000 allocated funding band, but assures that it is expected to be a formality.
Chris Oliver, AutoRaise trustee, said: “We are in dialogue with many providers but this sign-off will enable us to accelerate those discussions to the point where delivery of the standard becomes a reality in time for the start of the next academic year.”
“The multi skilled approach has been adopted by numerous repairers up and down the country and a number of training organizations have already committed to deliver this to their repairer clients. This, coupled with active interest from a couple of vehicle manufacturers, should well and truly place this standard, which was created by repairers for repairers in the middle of the Vehicle Repair sector.
AutoRaise chief executive, Bob Linwood, said: “It will also underpin the AutoRaise charity's approach to support employers’ recruitment and development of young people to help address the skills crisis.”
