TICA is commencing recruitment for the next Apprentice intake year, 2019/20.
TICA provides members with a full apprentice recruitment service, writing and placing apprenticeship vacancy advertisements, providing the initial sift of applicants ensuring candidates meet your requirements. We will arrange interviews for you, if required.
Accommodation costs for English and Welsh apprentices is now covered by the funding we receive from ESFA – employers will book the accommodation for their apprentice using their apprentice’s Unique Learner Number for accommodation Monday to Friday only, the cost of the accommodation will then be invoiced to and paid for by TICA.
The Scottish Government funding does not cover accommodation costs. TICA provides Scottish members with a £1,500 accommodation grant per apprentice.
TICA has induction weeks starting w/c 16 September 2019; each induction can hold 10 apprentices. Apprentices will be allocated to the next available induction by TICA. Once the induction week has been completed the apprentices will be assigned to a group and both the apprentice and employer will be notified of the schedule of TICA House attendance dates.
Thermal Insulation Apprenticeships are now assessed using the Smart Assessor e portfolio system, all apprentices will be trained to use Smart Assessor during their induction week. Employer logins will be provided for all with apprentices; if you currently have an apprentice on programme and have yet to use Smart Assessor please contact Louise Peacock to receive your login details and further information.
