The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) has published a new guidance note for design and applications engineers as part of its series of roadmaps setting out the skills, knowledge and behaviours required in key occupations.
It sits alongside the guidance note published last year for engineering technicians (on which the current apprenticeship programme was based).
The IOR is hosting a webinar on Wednesday June 2 (12-1pm) to discuss how employers, trainers and those working in these roles in sector can make use of the IOR Roadmaps to help support training and develop their careers.
The webinar will explore:
- How should IOR specifications be used by industry?
- What training capacity is in place and how can we support this?
- What mechanisms are needed to help employers share good practice and support skills development across sectors?
- Are there other skills gaps that need to be addressed?
The outcomes will form an action plan to promote skills and training and to promote careers in cooling.
