Between yourself, your employer and the Training Organisation you choose for your apprenticeship, a training plan will need to be created. This Training Plan will outline just what skills and competencies you will need to complete to be fully qualified at the end of your apprenticeship. These skills and competencies will be a mix of on the job training with the employer, and study you will complete under the guidance of your Training Organisation. This is to ensure that you are gaining the necessary skills to be competent in your trade.
You may find that sometimes you will be attending your Training Organisation for study, rather than going to work. The dates that you attend training will depend on what is decided on by the employer, the Training Organisation and you.
Brendan McConnell approached UMR Engines looking for an apprenticeship as an automotive mechanic. Although he had no previous industry experience, after taking the Harrison Career Assessment UMR Engines were willing to give him a chance.
“The boss took me around the workshop and then asked me to do the assessment. It took me about half an hour.
The blokes I work with help me along the way and it gives me great satisfaction that I’m able to help the customers”.
