As part of its ongoing support for industry apprenticeships, the JIB has launched two online tools to assist apprentices during their training.
A new one-minute video clip firstly gives a brief overview of the JIB’s role, what the organisation does, details on ECS cards and the support the JIB can provide.
Alongside this, the JIB Apprentice App provides more detailed advice and guidance specifically for JIB-registered apprentices.
Available on iPhone and Android, the app features bite-sized chunks of information on areas such as ECS cards, the JIB handbook, safe isolation procedures and pay rates for JIB apprentices.
In addition to the essential guidance linked to employment and training, the app also signposts to additional benefits and services such as the JIB Handtool Replacement Scheme, discounted driving lessons and counselling services.
The app has been specifically designed for JIB-registered apprentices, but much of the information is useful to all electrotechnical apprentices.
19-yr old Joe Durant, a JTL apprentice registered with the JIB, was one of the first to view and test the app.
“The entire design and layout made it extremely easy and simple to navigate without any problems – I was able to find what I wanted in literally seconds,” said Joe.
