ACAD started delivering Specialist Apprenticeship Programmes back in January 2015. These include all asbestos and supportive training, culminating in NVQ L2 achievement and are fully CITB grant funded up to £8,415.
With a growing number of apprentices now completing their two year programme ACAD will be reviewing the SAP training programme based on feedback from employers and candidates to expand the uptake of this great route into the sector.
Two main changes are becoming available, firstly the option for the employer to obtain the non-asbestos supportive training from their local preferred delivery network thus halving the time away at our SAP centres in Essex, Bristol and Darlington. This will slash direct and indirect costs to the employer and also minimise downtime making the programme even more attractive.
In addition the overall duration is likely to be cut from the current 24 months to between 12 and 18 months which again will lower costs. The exact duration will be bespoke to an individual based on their prior experience and how quickly they acquire their the new skills.
With starts around the UK there has never been a better time to get your first year operatives onto the fully funded route to NVQ competence through ACAD.
