Birmingham Electrical Training, DCET Training and JTL are the first organisations to be accredited under the new JIB ‘Preferred Training Provider’ scheme.
The JIB scheme endorses providers who achieve the highest standards of training across the electrotechnical industry.
DCET and Birmingham Electrical Training, based in the South West and West Midlands respectively, are the leading private training providers in their regions, whilst JTL – the largest training provider in the industry – recruits apprentices across England and Wales.
Each apprentice who trains with these providers becomes a JIB Registered Apprentice, giving them access to a package of benefits from the JIB. The benefits include ECS cards at every stage of their training, employment support, funding and other discounts.
Steve Brawley, Chief Executive of the JIB, commented: “The JIB has introduced the Preferred Training Provider scheme 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.”
