The Institute for Apprenticeships today (7 June) approved the (Level 3) apprenticeship standard: accident repair technician, which describes the job role that an apprentice will be doing and the skills required of them by the automotive sector.
This document is relevant to:
- employers wanting to recruit an apprentice
- training organisations working with employers to make the apprenticeships available
The approved standard outlines the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of the apprentice and the job they will need to be able to do by the time they have completed their apprenticeship.
This standard is ready to use.
Under these reforms, employer-designed standards will replace frameworks over the course of this parliament.
The standard for an accident repair technician was developed by:
- GB Refinish Supplies Ltd
- Ethan Rees Linwood Memorial Fund
- DWS Bodyworks
- Fix Auto
- North East Accident Repair Centres
- Rye Street Group
- Parkford Group
- Hadfield Associates Ltd
