Request for support to develop apprenticeship standard

The Government has posted the online consultation for the approval to develop the Level 3 Furniture Apprenticeship Standard, and support is being sought from the industry.

The Employer Trailblazer Group, led by Senator International, has made a submission to Government to develop a new standard – anyone interested in supporting the development can find the feedback survey here.

The consultation closes on 11th December.

Ben Burbidge, master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, comments: “The Furniture Makers’ Company is wholeheartedly backing the development of the Level 3 Furniture Apprenticeship Standard and would encourage the entire furnishing industry to support the campaign by completing the online survey.

“The Level 2 Furniture Apprenticeship Standard was successfully developed and given ministerial approval earlier this year, thanks to the support of the furnishing industry. We now need the industry to rally together in order to get approval for the development of the Level 3 Standard.”
