Apprenticeship Scheme for Automatic Doors

ADSA logo tall

Representatives from thirteen companies plus three trade bodies, including ADSA met in Birmingham to discuss the creation of the first automatic door Apprenticeship Scheme.

The Trailblazers Apprenticeship Scheme was explained by Diane Wilford, Relationship Manager of the Skills Funding Agency and the person guiding the industry team in constructing and obtaining approval for the pedestrian automatic door Apprenticeship Scheme.

Paul Watson, RTR Services and Chairman of the industry scheme had organised the meeting which was open to all those who had expressed an interest in it.  Paul explained he wanted a team of industry experts to develop, produce and write a standard. This will be made available for comment to all in the industry through the trade associations before being sent for approval to the Skills Agency.  Following that process the group would need to produce an Assessment Plan and then agree a CAP allocation.

Those at the meeting agreed to a target of six months to gain approval of the Apprenticeship Scheme. Each stage would be sent for industry comment. For more information please contact
