The UK Government has approved a new apprenticeship standard for non-destructive testing (NDT). Employers who want to offer these apprenticeships should indicate their intention by contacting BINDT – the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing on email@example.com .
Roger Lyon, Phase 3 Trailblazer Apprenticeships Project Manager for BINDT, said: “This has been an immense effort by the Employers’ Development Group and our success has been achieved against a background of significant rejection of other Trailblazer apprenticeship standards. Approval of the standard was the major hurdle, but now we have achieved this we can press on with the assessment plan, costing model and other appropriate documentation.
“As part of BINDT’s strategic plan, NDT Apprenticeships will help to address the ageing profile of NDT technicians, it will encourage employers to take on new staff at reduced training costs and it will enable school leavers to embark on a worthwhile career in NDT.”
