FIS Training Specifications
FIS Training Specifications support apprenticeship training delivery. They have been developed to encourage standardisation across the sector.
Developed to encourage standardisation across the sector, FIS Training Specifications support apprenticeship training delivery and can be used to design training contextualised to the occupation.
A block syllabus has been produced to assist training organisations in the formulation of a course programme. It shows the minimum duration of each subject as expected by the Employer Development Group. Subjects do not need to be delivered in the order shown, organisations are encouraged to produce a progressive programme.
The Training Objectives show the tasks, the conditions under which the training for that task is to be delivered and the standard expected of the apprentice and/or trainee to confirm training is completed. The standard includes details of progressive testing and assessment designed to confirm assimilation and monitor the progress of each apprentice. The document provides clear guidance to course managers and instructors for planning the delivery of training. It may also be used to determine the quality of the training provided.
Our training specifications are available under licence for a 12-month period at a cost of £200 +VAT per specification licence. FIS Associate Member Training Providers have free access to all FIS training specifications and updates as soon as they become available.
Presented in six sections, each specification is mapped and referenced to the current National Occupation Standards and English Apprenticeship standard for the occupation. Programmes that follow the timing requirements of the Block Syllabus will meet the 20% off-the-job criteria. The Block Syllabus flags subjects that can be delivered at the employers’ premises.
