Skills Minister Matthew Hancock has asked the Industry Apprentice Council (IAC) to take part in a round table government discussion on apprenticeships, it has been reported. Topics to discuss will include: grading and assessment, employer support and the necessity of off-site learning.

Mr Hancock said: “I would like to invite the Industry Apprentice Council to a round table on the Richard Review. As we have employers involved in a round table, as we have education organisations involved in a round table, I would like to invite the IAC to be involved too.”

EAL managing director Ann Watson said: “We are thrilled industry apprentices will input directly into the future of Apprenticeships in the UK. The round table discussions on government’s Richard Review consultation are an excellent opportunity for the IAC’s members to have their say on government policy and help revolutionise the vocational pathway for learners across the country.”
