In March 2016, The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) will be hosting free technical workshops to be held at various locations across England and Wales.
The morning workshops, which will be run in collaboration with City & Guilds, will commence at 8:45am through to 12 noon and will cover:
How can we improve on the Building Regulations Enforcement in the Plumbing and Heating Industry?
Providing installers with the opportunity to express their opinions on the way Building Regulations are currently enforced in the plumbing and heating sector, this free technical session will also give delegates a chance to propose solutions for change and ultimately help their trade association to shape the future of the industry.
Consultation on the Plumbing and Heating Technician Apprenticeship
The second session of the workshop will allow installers to hear from industry experts about the new Apprenticeship Standard proposal, including the content and objectives of the new proposed End Assessment. Delegates will also be encouraged to put forward their views on the different ways that candidates will be assessed so they emerge from the apprenticeships with sufficient practical training and knowledge to prove that they are work ready rather than requiring further training.
The dates and locations for the free technical workshops will be:
15th March – Taunton
16th March – Dartford
22nd March – Solihull
23rd March – North Wales
24th March – Wakefield
