Preferred training providers confirmed

21 November 2017

Three training organisations have been identified as the first to be accredited under the Joint Industry Board (JIB) Preferred Training Provider scheme.

Included on the list are JTL, the industry's largest training provider, Birmingham Electrical Training and DCET Training.

JTL recruits apprentices across England and Wales, while DCET Training, part of the Focus Training Group, focuses on South West England and Birmingham Electrical Training is based in the West Midlands.

Each of the training providers are regarded as the leading operator in their area.

Inclusion on the scheme means that those training with the three organisations will be JIB registered apprentices.

This will provide a number of benefits including ECS cards for every stage of their training, employment support, funding and additional discounts.

JIB chief executive Steve Brawley said the scheme had been introduced to "promote those providers who achieve the highest standards".

"It is heartening that both national and regional providers have each been able to reach the very demanding benchmarks we have set.

"I would encourage other organisations who wish to qualify as a JIB Preferred Provider to look at the criteria and submit their applications," said Mr Brawley.
