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
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.
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
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

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
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
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
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
Apprentice Quality Review

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

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

Findings from the Baseline Inspection
But
–
training practices are outdated
–
poor standard of qualifications
–

–
lack of strategic direction
–
high pass rate for Sentinel Training
•
questionable value and accuracy
Findings from the Baseline Inspection
Many finding it hard to move from compliance to
continuous improvement
Excellent compliance with rules
Poor use of feedback from learners
Too much focus on rules rather than learner needs
Small size of many providers
–
lack of strategic vision
–
management focused on running the business
Findings from the Baseline Inspection
Limited inspirational training
Delivery focused on
knowledge transfer rather
than understanding of risks
Behavioural development not
a key focus
Poor support for literacy,
numeracy and
communications skills
Moving on
Extend to other areas
Engineering and other technical training
