We have combined our ESI learning design and delivery expertise with industry collaboration to provide innovative, practical and sustainable Apprenticeship programs for young entrants and experienced adults across the ESI streams of rail, transmission, distribution and cable jointing.
The objective of our programs is to provide high-quality training that students and industry can trust, aligned to industry and workforce needs. We seek to:
provide a modern approach to the gaining of qualifications that it is effective and flexible for today’s learners and their employing organisation
create a range of qualification pathways for apprentices and experienced workers that increase the choice of training and can be tailored to individual needs
build capability through mentoring and quality on-the-job experiences into our programs
continue to engage with industry and improve the validation of training and learning outcomes.
Programs can draw on our Subject Matter Expert trainers and from our clients who contribute their depth of industry skills and experience.
While our Apprenticeship programs are focused on technical skills, our flexible formats provide apprentices the opportunity to forge relationships while developing the self-management and communication skills that are essential for the modern workplace environment. This approach ensures that the apprentices receive a broad understanding of their chosen industry; form networks that can be sustained throughout their career and participate in contextual hands on experiences.
To support our Clients and their Apprentices, Thomson Bridge is developing an easily accessible eLogbook appto assist in the capture and validation of on-the-job work experiences and evidence, to provide both the apprentice and their supervisors with visibility of course progress via their smart phone devices.
