Hire Controller Trailblazer Apprenticeship approved

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 1:52 pm

The Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) has granted approval for delivery of the new Hire Controller (Plant, Tools and Equipment) Trailblazer Apprenticeship.

This follows several years’ of work by an employer-led Trailblazer Working Group who determined that a Hire Controller Trailblazer Apprenticeship Programme was critical in order to attract new recruits to the construction plant industry, as well as upskilling existing staff into a new role.

The Group was chaired by Kirsty Archbold-Laming, Director of Southern Hoists, and consists of hirers from various sectors including general plant, access, cranes, rail, ground support, small plant and tools, and concrete pumping. The CPA provided extensive administrative support and IPAF and HAE have also been involved.

Kirsty Archbold-Laming said: “We’re extremely pleased after several years of hard work to get the final approval from the Institute of Apprenticeships. This new apprenticeship will be a major step in helping recruit the new staff that we need in our sector.”

The Working Group defined the required duties of a Hire Controller for the training syllabus which included the provision of technical information to customers in helping them select and use suitable equipment for the planned activities; ensuring the equipment being hired is compliant with Health & Safety requirements; completing contract documentation at both on-hire and off-hire stages; processing payments;, fraud prevention measures; handling customer enquiries and disciplines involved with personal and professional development.

The apprenticeship has been set at Level 2 and will take between 12-18 months to complete. The Working Group’s final task is to prepare the apprenticeship for delivery which will involve the three supporting federations, namely the CPA, IPAF and HAE, as well as CITB and the training providers who participated in the group. It is envisaged that readiness-for-delivery will take place in early 2019.
