Developing science professionals for training providers

  1. 1. Higher Apprenticeship for Life Sciences & Chemical Science ProfessionalsDeveloping Science Professionals forTraining Providers
  2. 2. Developing Science Professionals• A professional development programme for laboratory, scientific and technical employees up to graduate level.• Delivery through a new Higher Apprenticeship for Life Sciences & Chemical Science Professionals.• Pathways for life sciences, chemical science, food science, healthcare science, process development and packaging development.• Supports professional recognition as registered science technician or registered scientist.• An alternative work based training route to the traditional academic route to graduate status.
  3. 3. Why Science Professionals?• Demand is rising for technicians in a broad range of sectors.• Scientific and technical skills are essential to delivering growth in the UK in the 21st Century.• Science professionals provide a unique transferable and increasingly sought after skill set.Science Council report identifies:• 155,240 primary science workers with level 3 & 4 qualifications employed in 2009/10.• 35,000 of laboratory, scientific and technical employees are aged 16 -29.• 31% of the total population of primary science workers are aged over 50.There is a need to invest in the pipeline of professionally recognised competent technicians in order to secure the scientific skills pipeline of the future.
  4. 4. Employers are interested in HigherApprenticeship for Life Sciences & ChemicalScience Professionals• An opportunity to recruit ambitious people committed to developing a career in their company.• An employer driven work-based development programme tailored to the high level skills needs of their laboratory, scientific and technical employees that is complemented by academic knowledge.• A route to grow their own talent pool and build an elite cohort to work alongside their graduate intake.• A programme that recognises the current skills of their laboratory, scientific and technical employees and provides motivation to achieve professional status.• A programme that allows them to develop new talent working alongside their existing experts and address the challenges of retaining corporate knowledge and succession planning.• A structured method for developing the mentoring and supervisory skills of established employees.
  5. 5. Young people are interested in HigherApprenticeship for Life Sciences & ChemicalScience ProfessionalsKey features of the Higher Apprenticeship:•An opportunity to earn whilst learning and avoid the costs of a full time undergraduateprogramme.•A real job that allows them to gain real work experience from day one and build a credibleCV.•Higher Apprentices are focussed individuals with a commitment to developing practicalskills alongside the high level academic knowledge needed for challenging technical rolesin hi-tech industries.•Apprentices can remain in the role they have entered or have the opportunity to progresswithin the company, gaining further experience and qualifications as they develop.•Higher Apprenticeship is not just for the academic high flyers, it’s for those who have agenuine interest in developing practical scientific skills.•Working alongside other science professionals and gaining the qualifications andcompetence that leads to professional status as a Registered Science Technician orRegistered Scientist.
  6. 6. Providers are interested in HigherApprenticeship for Life Sciences & ChemicalScience Professionals• A CPD programme for current laboratory, scientific and technical students that offers progression routes from level 3 programmes such as : • LATA Advanced Apprenticeship • BTEC Nationals in STEM subjects • STEM A-Levels• An opportunity to develop new business with employers who are new to Apprenticeships.• A vehicle for developing partnerships with Higher Education.• A programme that is at the heart of Government’s ambition for growth through skills development.
