EUIAS to hold free information event for Independent Technical Experts Network

The Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service (EUIAS) is welcoming sector specialists to learn more about joining their Independent Technical Experts Network at a free information event in November.

Since its establishment in 2014, the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service has celebrated several milestones as a provider of rigorous and robust end-point assessment services. As the very first end-point assessment organisation to have apprentices achieve on new apprenticeship standards, they have secured numerous blue-chip customers across a range of sectors including energy, utilities, manufacturing and food and drink. The key to the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service’s success is their network of quality assured technical experts who partner with them to support the delivery of a strong, credible and influential service.

As they continue to expand, the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service is now actively seeking to grow these partnerships through expansion of the Independent Technical Experts Network, and will be holding a free information event at their Solihull offices on Thursday 1 November 2018.

Technical experts are required to make assessment judgements about the competence of apprentices in the workplace, with their work contributing to the final grade awarded by the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service to the apprentice for their end-point assessment.

The Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service is approved on the Register of End-point Assessment Organisations to deliver end-point assessment for 10 standards, and is particularly keen to partner with individuals holding technical expertise in sector-specific areas including gas engineering, maintenance and operations engineering, and water networks.

“This is a really exciting time to join the Independent Technical Experts Network,” says Helen Hawkins, Quality and Compliance Manager. “Over 570 apprentices have now achieved through the Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service across a range of standards, and technical experts are central to ensuring we continue to deliver a credible service.”

The information event will provide individuals with the opportunity to learn more about the Independent Technical Experts Network and becoming an approved technical expert. Information about requirements and training will be shared for prospective partners, who must hold or be working towards an assessor qualification.

Further information is available on the event page, where you can book your free place.
