The Energy & Utility Skills Apprenticeships and Technical Education Advisory Group (ATEAG) represents members’ interests in informing the government’s apprenticeship reforms. The group meets regularly to review and influence policy developments in technical education standards, apprenticeships, the apprenticeship Levy and T Levels.
The November meeting of the group was hosted by Veolia at their Energy Recovery Facility near Stafford and was addressed by Dr Graham Honeyman, Chair of the IfA’s Engineering and Manufacturing Route Panel.
Dr Honeyman, Head of International Business Development at Sheffield Forgemasters, informed the meeting on the latest work of the IfA and of the priorities for the Engineering and Manufacturing route panel. ATEAG members discussed the energy and utility sector’s high performance with apprenticeships and their involvement in ensuring that the sector is fully represented in the development of new apprenticeships and T Levels.
Dr Honeyman and ATEAG members toured the Veolia ERF and met with engineering apprentices at the fully-equipped learning facility.
