Apprenticeship catalogue

CompTIA, as a provider of IT skills certifications, has launched the CompTIA Apprenticeship Training Solutions Catalogue. The IT association, which has awarded 2.5 million certifications globally, has designed the catalogue to help trainers understand how CompTIA learning maps to the UK’s digital apprenticeship standards.

The resource links to mapping documents, learning objectives and other material that can help providers navigate apprenticeships. Each relevant tech standard included in the catalogue is designed with eLearning content at its core and courses have been mapped to associated Apprenticeship Standards. Some training provides access to CompTIA CertMaster Learn, an eLearning suite with content and features designed for apprentices. Other learning materials available include eBooks, labs and practice questions.

Graham Hunter, VP Skills Certifications at CompTIA (the Computing Technology Industry Association), said: “Now more than ever Employers and Apprentices alike are looking for greater flexibility in how and where they can access learning. At the same time any resulting investment needs to bring value. Understanding how learning content and the associated apprenticeship modules align is complex and we hope that the Apprentice Solutions Catalogue can help shed some light on the wide range of engaging and rich learning materials available whether their candidates are working remotely or in the office.”

End-point Assessors have also endorsed the insight the catalogue brings. John Pritchard, Accelerate People, said: “Over many years of overseeing end-point assessments, we can attest to the marked boost in professional skills that certifications provide. By demonstrating the close links between CompTIA learning objectives and Apprenticeship Standards Outcomes, this catalogue will help providers fast-track delivery of the knowledge required within the identified apprenticeships. The transferable skills gained by aligning learning to the objectives of vendor qualifications will also crucially lower the barrier to entry for those looking to self-certify, opening up a number of opportunities later on in their careers, setting them up for life-long learning and growth.”
