The Apprenticeship Council was launched by the Minister for Education and Skills on 18th November 2014. The establishment of the Apprenticeship Council is a key action in the implementation of recommendations from the recent Irish Apprenticeship review. In particular, the Council is tasked with the expansion of Apprenticeship into new sectors of the economy and mapping out the sectors where new apprenticeships can make a real difference to both employers and employees. The Apprenticeship Council will, in accordance with the Apprenticeship Implementation Plan: • Develop a call for proposals for apprenticeships in areas outside of the current trades • Examine and analyse the proposals arising from the calls for proposals An initial call for proposals received 86 responses from Industry lead consortia (group consisting of industry and coordinating provider) which were managed through a manual process with documents submitted by email and stored as PDF files. Of those, 23 were designated Category 1 (most suitable for immediate development) and are at an advanced stage with the remaining proposals requiring significant work and resubmission for evaluation. General Requirements Apprenticeship Proposal Application System SOLAS, on behalf of the Apprenticeship Council, wishes to outsource the development of an e-Application facility for new Apprenticeship proposals. The system will allow for web-based submission and management of apprenticeship proposals by consortia, with application data automatically transmitted to a database that will support the Apprenticeship Council assessment and decision processes on those proposals. It is intended that the e-Application facility will be hosted on a SOLAS server and accessed through the www.apprenticeshipcouncil.ie website.
