This programme is currently being revised.
As part of the Government’s review of future apprenticeships, and under the umbrella of the Trailblazer Apprenticeship programme, an industry working group has developed a new Apprenticeship standard in Papermaking.
The UK Paper Industry is facing a serious challenge. Over the next few years, long serving traditional papermakers will be leaving the industry, and when they leave they will take with them many years of technical knowledge, expertise and skills. Unless we do something now this will have a significant impact on the industry’s future.
Succession planning for the future is crucial and this new Paper Industry National Trailblazer standard provides employers with a 3 year programme to attract potential future employees into the Paper Industry.
If you want your next generation of papermakers to:
- be technically competent
- have the knowledge and understanding of the process
- problem solve
- be a first line response for engineering tasks
- contribute to continuous improvement
the Trailblazers apprenticeship programme will help you achieve that.
