The average Apprenticeship completer increases business productivity by 214 per week. Recruiting for tomorrow today Transform your talent pipeline with Cogent Skills, the go-to place for science industry skills The demand for skilled workers in the science industries is increasing, yet employers are struggling to find young people with the practical skills and experience they are seeking. For the science industries to flourish, it is important to equip the next generation with the skills to succeed. Cogent Skills believes that Apprenticeships are the answer to building and preparing your talent pipeline. With over a decade of expertise in skills for science industries, we respond to the skills demands of businesses and provide expert advice and guidance throughout the Apprenticeship process. Everything that we do is underpinned by a robust quality system. Recruiting an apprentice can feel like a complicated task, but it needn t be with the support of Cogent Skills. We are a National Apprenticeship Service Approved Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA), quality assured to deliver our services to employers in the science and technical industries. We can employ your apprentice on our headcount and help with all HR and payroll functions and assist in the recruitment of the apprentice. 80% of employers feel that Apprenticeships reduce staff turnover.

3 4 5 About Apprenticeships An Apprenticeship is a work-based learning programme which leads to a nationally recognised qualification and enables young people to earn whilst learning on the job. Apprenticeships are available to young people over the age of 16 and provide the practical skills sought after by industry. Hiring apprentices help businesses to grow their own talent and train employees in line with company requirements. There are three different levels of Apprenticeships available: Types of Apprenticeships available in the Science Industries Apprenticeships in the science industries cover a wide range of job roles in the sector, and not all of them are technical. Cogent Skills can help you to access Apprenticeships in the following areas: Laboratory and Science Technicians Process Manufacturing Cogent Technical Apprenticeship Service works with organisations of all sizes and covers the whole of the science industries, including chemicals, polymers, process, biotechnology, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, biomedical technologies, environmental technologies and biomedical devices.

4 6 7 SMART Apprenticeships Cogent Skills is the expert delivery partner of the Science Industry Partnership (SIP). SMART Apprenticeships, designed in response to concerns about the quality of Apprenticeships, are a flexible approach to the delivery of Apprenticeship training and focus on quality. SMART Apprenticeships put employers in control of the training to ensure that it is in line with the developments of industry, the company and job landing role of the apprentice. This guarantees that the apprentice is fully competent at the end of their Apprenticeship. The apprentice will be expected to meet the national standard, which specifies what they must know and be able to do. This will be independently assessed at the end of their training. If they meet the standard they will be deemed to be fully competent in that job and will receive a graded Apprenticeship Award. The ATP is specifically tailored to the requirements of the business and the individual. An Apprenticeship Adviser from Cogent Skills will provide expert support to help develop the ATP. In-house training can be incorporated into the ATP making sure that the apprentice is getting the right training to perform effectively as a key member of the team. SMART Apprenticeships are based on a standards approach defined by employers. The SMART approach is focussed on the ability of the apprentice to perform their landing role, the job that they joined the company for. Benefits of SMART Apprenticeships Employers have control of designing the standards so that the Apprenticeship responds to the needs of industry and the company. Funding available through the SIP New and existing employees are able to learn and develop skills whilst making a positive contribution to the development and output of the company. A perfect opportunity for experienced members of staff to pass on their company specific knowledge to enthusiastic new workers. Increased focus on training for the job means that the apprentice must demonstrate their ability through rigorous assessment at the end of their Apprenticeship. Recruit new members of staff at the very beginning of their career and develop them in-line with company requirements In-house training can be used towards developing the apprentice s competence. All training providers are quality assured by Cogent Skills Support of a Cogent Apprenticeship Adviser to develop the training plan and support the employer and apprentice throughout the Apprenticeship. Cogent can additionally assist in the recruitment of an apprentice. Unlike the traditional approach to the delivery of Apprenticeship training, the apprentice s development is mapped out at the beginning in the form of a bespoke Apprenticeship Training Plan (ATP).

5 8 9 Higher Apprenticeships Higher Apprenticeships combine on the job training with employees studying for a higher level qualification, giving businesses the knowledgeable workforce required. Higher Apprenticeships (HAs) provide employers with an alternative to graduate recruitment. They fill the gap between traditional Apprenticeships and university degrees in terms of vocational skills. The Higher Apprenticeship (HA) for Life Sciences and Chemical Science Professionals provides laboratory, scientific and technical employees with the opportunity to gain qualifications up to graduate level with the addition of hands on experience gained through work. The HA framework contains five pathways; Life Sciences, Chemical Science, Process Development, Packaging Development and Food Science. Each pathway offers a choice of qualifications, including Higher National Diplomas or Foundation Degrees at Level 5, which have been designed to maximise work-based learning through flexible delivery mechanisms that are suited to both large and small employers. There are now opportunities for the apprentice to progress onto a BSc Hons in Chemical Science or BSc Hons in Life Science. The Higher Apprenticeship includes an integrated qualification with the following elements: Competence Element Achievement of this element shows that the apprentice is competent in performing the job role and evidence of this is needed for the apprentice to gain their Apprenticeship certificate. Technical Knowledge Element Achievement of this element shows that the apprentice has the necessary technical skills, knowledge and understanding of theoretical concepts as well as knowledge and understanding of the relevant industry and its market. Recognition of professional development The programme has been mapped to the requirements of the Science Council Technician register, allowing the higher apprentice to gain professional recognitions as a Registered Technician (RSciTech) at Level 3 and on completion of the programme, as a Registered Scientist (RSci) at Level 5. Benefits of Higher Apprenticeships The HA pathways were designed by employers and reflect the range of technical and business skills that leads to the professional competence employers need. Build a diverse workforce with a range of different skills and perspectives. Higher apprentices will develop the knowledge and occupational competencies demanded by specific job roles, meeting unique business requirements. Skills are developed that are not only relevant to the science-based industries, but are specific to your business. Life Sciences Pathway Level 6 Any p/t BSc Life Sciences or Bioscience Level 5 FdSci Applied Bioscience Technology (Kent) or HND Diploma Biological Sciences for Industry Level 4 HNC Diploma Biological Sciences for Industry or FD Science Subject plus LATA Level 4 or HNC Applied Biology plus LATA Level 4 Chemical Science Pathway Level 6 Any p/t BSc Chemical Science or Chemistry Level 5 FdSc Chemical Science (MMU) or (Hull) or HND Diploma Chemical Science for Industry Level 4 HNC Diploma Chemical Science for Industry or FD Science Subject plus LATA Level 4 or HNC Applied Chemistry plus LATA Level 4 Access untapped, underrepresented pools of recruits with the talent to contribute to business success.
