The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has launched an interactive apprenticeships catalogue to support training providers amid a changing work landscape.
The IT skills certification provider has created the Apprentice Training Solutions Catalogue to show training providers and their staff how its learning objectives map to the UK’s digital apprenticeship standards.
CompTIA hopes this will help training providers work with employers to offer “outstanding IT apprenticeships”.
The catalogue links directly to mapping documents, learning objectives and other material. Each tech standard in the catalogue is designed with eLearning content at its core and the course objectives have been mapped to associated apprenticeship standards to ensure learning aligns.
Graham Hunter, vice president, skills certifications at CompTIA, said: “Now more than ever employers and apprentices alike are looking for greater flexibility in how and where they can access learning. At the same time any resulting investment needs to bring value.
“We hope that the Apprentice Solutions Catalogue can help shed some light on the wide range of engaging and rich learning materials available whether their candidates are working remotely or in the office” – Graham Hunter, CompTIA
“Understanding how learning content and the associated apprenticeship modules align is complex and we hope that the Apprentice Solutions Catalogue can help shed some light on the wide range of engaging and rich learning materials available whether their candidates are working remotely or in the office.”
The most robust solution available provides candidates access to CompTIA CertMaster Learn, an eLearning suite packed with content and features designed to help apprentices learn in an engaging and flexible way; in addition to the core eLearning, which offers back-end reporting for the training provider and managers.
Other learning materials available include eBooks, labs and practice questions.
John Pritchard, director of end-point assessment organisation Accelerate People, said: “Over many years of overseeing end-point assessments, we can attest to the marked boost in professional skills that certifications provide. By demonstrating the close links between CompTIA learning objectives and Apprenticeship Standards Outcomes, this catalogue will help providers fast-track delivery of the knowledge required within the identified apprenticeships.”
