The training programme includes new industry-approved unit standards incorporating both on-the-job practical learning in the workplace and online learning - allowing apprentices to complete theory elements in their own time and at their own pace. With access to online learning resources, including hundreds of videos and interactive simulations, and theory assessments, online learning is an exciting feature of the programme that can be accessed at any time and from any device – mobile phone, tablet or computer.
MITO Chief Executive Janet Lane says “We are delighted to offer online learning as part of this new training programme. It delivers theory content in an interactive, dynamic and visually engaging way and we are sure this will resonate considerably with apprentices and their employers. We are immensely proud to deliver a training programme that has been developed in close consultation with the heavy automotive industry and designed to meet their specific needs. We sincerely thank all those involved for their input and subject expertise.”
The Level 3 programme, which takes 18 months to complete, is now open for enrolments. The Level 4 programme, which will feature strands in Road Transport, Plant and Equipment, Agricultural Equipment, and Materials Handling Equipment, will be available in mid-2018.
