The Acoustics Technician Level 4 apprenticeship has been developed as an employer-led industry initiative with support from the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics.
It is hoped that the first students can start the apprenticeship in September. It comprises work-based training coupled with study.
Richard Grove, Acoustics Director at BDP (Building Design Partnership) and Chair of the working group that developed the scheme, said: “Apprentices will have a clear, defined career path and the programme will offer opportunities for diversity and inclusion within the acoustics industry.
“It will also bring benefits to the higher education sector by acting as a feeder for degree and other courses.”
A FAQ guide has been produced for those who are considering taking on an apprentice, as well as anyone considering it as a career option.
