From education to employment

Apprenticeship standard: steel fixer approved for delivery

The Institute for Apprenticeships today (17 May) approved the steel fixer (level 2) Apprenticeship standard, which describes the job role that an apprentice will be doing and the skills required of them by the construction 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.
