Guide Notes on the Implementation of Recommendation 1: Training of Craft Apprentices.
Electricity Supply Industry Training Board, London (England).
A review of craft apprentice training in Great Britain has been carried out by the training board, based on the reports of its regional training officers, on discussions with electricity board training staff, and on the comments received from the industry through the concordat procedure. As a result of the review, certain specific matters were identified on which it was evident some further guidance in the implementation of Recommendation 1 would be welcomed by electricity boards. These arose from experience of the application of Recommendation 1, and the changes proposed can be carried out within its general framework. These are: (1) the provision of a common first-year program for distribution trades, (2) the further development of related-trades training, (3) the need for the flexibility in the implementation of on-job training programs, (4) the effect of changes in the pattern of recruitment, (5) the effect of developments in the field of further education, and (6) the implications of experience gained from use of first and third year test. These six changes are discussed in detail. A common first year training program for distribution craft apprentices takes up the second half of the document. The intended training period is approximately 36 weeks. (Author/DS)
