Revised Laboratory Technician Standard approved

It’s been confirmed that the Health and Science Route Panel and the IfATE Board have agreed the revised level 3 Laboratory Technician apprenticeship standard, subject to some minor conditions.

The LSIS review group have worked hard over the last 9 months to ensure that they have revised the standard to reflect sector needs and also those of others such as Dentistry and the NHS.

Taking a collaborative approach with both Health Education England (HEE) and the NHS, employers have committed their valuable time and resource to ensure we now have a robust and up to date standard.

Thanks go to the review group employer representatives from GSK, Covance, Stirling, Fujifilm, Aesica and Lotte.
