Level 3 Construction Plant Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship Consultation

An employer working group – facilitated by CPA, has been working to develop a construction plant-specific apprenticeship for plant maintenance technicians at level 3 for which approval to develop the apprenticeship was received by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) in late March 2023.

The industry working group have since been devising the ‘standard’, which is required knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs) for the occupation, followed by the development of the end point assessment - which is the final assessment that confirms that all the relevant learning has been achieved.

This level 3 apprenticeship supplements the level 2 version for plant mechanics and for which the standard can be viewed at https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/apprenticeship-standards/construction-equipment-maintenance-mechanic-v1-0

The apprenticeship standard and the end point assessment are now at the submission stage for final IfATE approval and for which, as part of the approval process, the final draft standard requires widespread consultation with industry.

The draft standard can be downloaded below and we welcome any comments on the content of the standard before submission for final approval.
