  24. National Training Academy for T&RS Collaboration between Siemens Plc, NSARE Ltd and Government National ‘hub’ at Northampton, ‘spokes’ around the country Concept: Government funds 50% in return for 50% of training capacity to be made available to industry through NSARE Cost: £7million Programme: Q1’13 Agreement with BIS/DfT Q2’13 Design & Build Contract placed Q3’14 ‘Open for Business’

  25. ERTMS quality focused

  26. Industry View of Future Train Control System Configuration (ERTMS) Control Centre Voice communications On board train detection Movement authority Advisory speed Automatic Train Operation Intelligent Traffic Management Key nodes Limited signalling Limited train detection

  27. Study covers ETCS aspects of ERTMS ETCS Academy Project Scope

  28. Key Job Families 4 workshops were held with industry wide stakeholders attending - over 200 roles were identified as being impacted by ERTMS. These have been summarised into 13 key job families All others will require some level of ERTMS awareness

  29. Estimated no of people in key roles now The numbers include: • Network Rail staff • A sample of the supply chain from skills forecasting data, plus • Estimates for the supply chain where data not received from employers

  30. SkillsID quality focused

  31. SkillsID – What is it? Online record of an individual’s skills, competencies, qualifications Accessible by employer (sponsor) and individual – promotes ownership of own development Updated by employer (sponsor), NSARE accredited training providers – all verified records

  32. Common Reference Library (Job Roles, Qualifications etc.) Skills Backbone IT Platform Demand Supply Central Processor National Database Organisations Employee Record Trainers & Assessors Accredited Training CPD / Career Planning SkillsID Course Directory Skills Forecasting Training and Assessment Content Access via Web Portal Mobile Access

  33. SkillsID – Interfaces with other systems Competencies, Training Courses, Employee Data, etc. Training Providers Employers NSARE SkillsID National Competency Database – Technical, Safety, Behavioural, etc. NR Sentinel TfL LUCAS Crossrail System TOC Systems Employer Systems Industry Launch: early March 2013

  34. Qualifications Structure quality focused

  35. Supporting Railway Engineering Matthew Scarff Senior Business Development Manager 24th January 2013

  36. Qualifications Transferred to Semta/EAL Safety competencies are important BUT should be a component of an individual’s portfolio of competencies Increasing recognition that behaviours, including Leadership & Management, are critical to success

  37. Background to EAL... Began providing qualifications in 1964 as Engineering Industry Training Board (EITB). Our sole purpose was to service the UK engineering industries We are the leading vocational Awarding Organisation in Engineering and Manufacturing, with a 75% market share of all skills provision In recent years we have successfully expanded our offering into allied sectors Our qualifications are used by over 800 centres and we currently issue over 150,000 certificates to learners a year In 2012 we became Excellence, Achievement and Learning

  38. Our primary focus is on supporting employers and industry Qualifications should be a workforce development solution that support growth We view quality are being our USP and we are the only Awarding Organisation to employ full time external verifiers to lead on quality assurance We work with a range of employers and their providers to develop specific qualification to support their business needs We have reinvested over £10m back into industry over the last 5 years.

  39. Initial Developments - Track Engineering Fundamentals • THE CHALLENGE: • Weekend warriors - track renewals/maintenance • HUGE contingent labour workforce • Demographics, working practice and sub contracting arrangements make for a hard to reach group • 7500 people potentially 'unskilled' and/or 'unqualified' • Diverse skills mix and training needs

  40. Initial Developments - Track Engineering Fundamentals • THE SOLUTION: • A qualification that recognises existing Network Rail training programmes • A qualification that allows for mixed ability • A qualification that utilises existing systems for assessment and quality assurance purposes • A qualification that makes best use of learner and employers' time • A qualification that strives for industry best practice

  41. Work experience (up to 6 moths depending on experience) – complete industry required logbook Skills Diagnostic Level 2 Track Engineering Fundamentals Training Course (length depending on experience). Involving centre marked practical assignments Final Assessment (professional discussion) EAL Test

  42. Initial Developments - Track Engineering Fundamentals • Next Steps: • Funding rates to be agreed • Limited pilot in April (circa 200 learners) • Potential roll-out for 13-14 academic year

  43. Future Projects • Qualifications based on OLEC standards: • OLEC touches significant parts of the workforce from being needing to have awareness of OLEC to being competent • Is an industry based standard with no formal assessment programme • Qualifications will bring needed structure to the industry. It will give employers more confidence and will provide employees with national recognition • The qualifications will be based on existing competency requirements

  44. Going Forward • EAL will work closely with NSARE • Building a dedicated Rail team within EAL • Ensure there is a clear channel of communication with interested Centres • Quality products that meet the needs of industry is our focus Matthew Scarff Senior Business Development Manager 24th January 2013

  45. Future Projects • Revised Qualification Frameworks: • SEMTA and NSARE will lead review • EAL will develop all qualifications required by the sector, irrespective of level • Apprenticeships and qualifications must bridge the gap with competency frameworks and schemes so education pathways become the norm for the sector • EAL anticipate creating a robust suite of qualifications and apprenticeship over the next 12 months • NB All current apprenticeships in Railway Engineering are valid and any new introductions will be phased in

  46. Apprentice Quality Review quality consistency

  47. Apprentice Quality ReviewMartin Ward - NAS Some very good delivery, but…..some areas for real concern

  48. Level 2 - Track Apprenticeships Concerns raised by NSARE following feedback from industry: 2000 level 2 apprentices • 10,000 total workforce Funding driven, not employer driven • Provider led apprenticeships Long term sustainable employment Reputational damage to rail industry

  49. Review of Intermediate level Rail Engineering Track delivery Some very good delivery but some where we have concerns to be resolved All delivery that fell into the review was sub contracted mostly through colleges Many providers were also the employer – employment circumstances not always clear during the Apprenticeship and on completion. Better quality where recruitment based on real anticipated employment need. In most cases the duration of Apprenticeships have been extended to reflect the 18 months in the framework but not all. Some questions about the use of heritage railways or museums to deliver the Apprenticeship. Is this adequate to prepare for work on the main network? Will be interesting to see in time how many progress to the appropriate Advanced Apprenticeship

  50. Review of Intermediate level Rail Engineering Track delivery • Memorandum of Understanding between NSARE and NAS gives a strong platform to build on. • Gives a real opportunity to understand the sector • Shared interest in the development of high quality training in the sector. • Want to grow the use of Apprenticeships within the Rail Industry both intermediate and Advanced level. Really positive signs this is happening but must also ensure that these are high quality and linked to sustainable employment. • Will work together to ensure real understanding of how the industry operates National Apprenticeship Service
