The Benefits Of
Training with us

 The purpose of this Apprenticeship is to provide a recruitment and training tool to bring new people into the industry and develop whole job competence (beyond the requirements for the Gas Safe Register) in a range of job roles. This Apprenticeship provides employers with the ability to develop a sustainable workforce and address current and anticipated skills gaps, critical today where skilled employees are becoming increasingly difficult to recruit.

The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship pathway in Gas Utilisation Installation and Maintenance – Water Heating and Wet Central Heating is tailored to meet the requirements of employers and new entrants and is appropriate for individuals who carry out the installation and commissioning, fault diagnosis, repair and maintenance of a range of gas fired wet central heating appliances and systems to required safety and quality standards.

Successful completion of the Level 3 framework equips an apprentice with the ability to select and use relevant knowledge, ideas, skills and procedures to complete well defined tasks and address straightforward problems. They include taking responsibility for completing tasks and procedures, and exercising autonomy and judgement subject to overall direction or guidance.

At Logic4Training we work with employers and industry experts to deliver training that is purposely designed to improve your business functions and better support your most valuable asset: your people.

By working with us you will have access to a ready pool of talent, and dedicated resources to support you through the programme. We will help you with the recruitment process – through entry requirements, assessment days and interviews, to ensure that you get the right apprentice. Our expert assessors and relationship managers will be on hand to guide you and the apprentice through the programme. You won’t be left on your own; we will work with you to regularly review both the apprentices progress and the programme.

The Level 3 apprenticeships are delivered over 36 months and the majority of apprentices are between the ages of 16 and 24. Apprentices will undertake a mix of on-the-job and off the job training to complete their Apprenticeship.

The Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship is open to individuals of any age and does not impose any restrictions to entry. Responsibility for identifying the selection criteria lies with the employer who will have a clear idea of their requirements and Logic4Training can then support with the recruitment to these identified criteria.

 

Employers must be confident that the prospective apprentice has the learning potential/capacity, motivation and aptitude to achieve all of the mandatory outcomes of the framework. However, employers are asked to be flexible when recruiting people onto the apprenticeship. Where employers/providers have robust learner support systems in place (such as tutorials and mentoring programmes), an individual who historically has not done particularly well at reading, writing and numeracy may thrive on an apprenticeship where the relevance and application of these subjects is understood.

 

Individuals with the following characteristics and attributes are likely to be suitable for this Apprenticeship:

  • Gas is dangerous if not handled correctly, so the safety of apprentices, their work colleagues and the public are of the upmost importance in this job. Apprentices must be very safety conscious and have a very responsible attitude to work, working in accordance with company health and safety procedures at all times.
  • Apprentices must be prepared to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when required.
  • These are physically demanding jobs that involve bending and lifting so a basic level of fitness is important to be able to conduct the job efficiently.
  • Some of these jobs (in particular within network construction operations) involve work outdoors, so apprentices should be prepared to work in any kind of weather.
  • Apprentices will need to have good practical skills for handling tools and instruments and be prepared for some hard work. These are very skilled jobs and some aspects require significant amounts of concentration.
  • Some of these jobs involve travelling as apprentices will work at different sites, may be responding to emergencies day and night and will travel between customers’ properties.
  • Apprentices therefore need to be adaptable and flexible. Some employers will insist that Apprentices will hold or be working towards a full UK driving license on commencement of their Apprenticeship and must be in possession of a full UK driving licence on completion.
  • Apprentices will need an interest in the gas industry and in mechanical/electrical/physical equipment and networks.
  • Most of these job roles involve dealing with the general public on a day-to-day basis so apprentices should be presentable and have a polite and courteous manner. Apprentices will need excellent verbal communication skills and be able to provide a good level of customer care.
  • Clean and tidy by nature with good self-discipline and timekeeping.
  • The ability to work within a team and independently.

 

Examples of formal qualifications that can be used as an indication that an applicant has the potential to progress into and complete the Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship are:

  • Functional Skills, or their equivalent in English, Maths and/or ICT at level 1 or 2 OR GCSE grade A-D in each of the following:- a communication subject, maths and either a science or technical-based subject OR
  • Level 1 or 2 GNVQs in relevant vocational/technical subjects OR
  • A 14-19 Diploma in either Construction and The Built Environment, or Engineering OR
  • An intermediate level 2 apprenticeship

A Level 1 or 2 ‘Access to Building Services Engineering’ qualification

The Advanced Level Apprenticeship provides the best possible preparation to achieving skilled status within the industry. Historically apprentices have progressed significantly in the industry and many have gone on to become Supervisors, Managers and General Managers. Many have remained in the industry for their whole career.

 

The apprentice’s knowledge about career pathways, information sources and the names of relevant professional bodies are developed as part of the Employee Rights and Responsibilities component of this Advanced Level Apprenticeship.

 

Throughout any career in the gas industry, individuals will be provided with the necessary on-going on and off job training, including refresher training and new skills training, to enable them to carry out their job role competently.

 

On completion of the Advanced Level Apprenticeship under normal circumstances apprentices will continue to work in their current job role.

 

Completion of one of the level 3 combined qualifications satisfies the Engineering Council requirements for Engineering Technician status and therefore enables the apprentice to become a professional engineer as defined by all the Engineering institutions (for example the Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers – IGEM). This will supports career progression to Technician, Supervisor and Manager roles.
