The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) apprentice panel is now recruiting for new members for 2020 and beyond.


The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) apprentice panel is now recruiting for new members for 2020 and beyond. It needs members to represent all 15 ‘routes’ and from occupations in levels 2 to 7. If you know of an apprentice in your organisation or elsewhere who should apply, please do share the link below with them and encourage them to apply by 13 January 2020.

This exciting opportunity is open to past and present apprentices who are looking to make a positive difference to the work that the institute does. The panel exists to advise the Institute and Government from the perspective of the apprentice. They bring insights from their experiences of being an apprentice and play a representative function for other apprentices.

The apprentice panel members are appointed to:

  • provide information about their own views, concerns and attitudes of apprenticeships,
  • gather an understanding and engage with apprentices nationwide by way of survey data and research,
  • report data and any findings to the Institute’s officials,
  • present any ideas to the Institute’s board when required,
  • meet with government ministers as regularly as possible,
  • provide genuine insights of everyday life as an apprentice to the Institute and other government bodies participate in any other relevant discussions or events when necessary.

Please share this with apprentices and encourage them to express their interest in joining the apprentice panel by our extended deadline of Monday 13 January 2020.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Lily Anderson via: lily.anderson@education.gov.uk
