The new ‘Arborist’ Apprenticeship standard was launched in June 2017
Designed by employers, the standard replaces the existing ‘Trees and Timber’ frameworks, bringing multiple benefits.
This new approach to apprenticeships will deliver the standards employers seek.
High quality and consistent standards that are deliverable for training and assessment providers will develop more arborists with the core skills required to be successful in the industry.
Arboricultural Association members, along with employers of all sizes and training providers in the industry had considerable input in the process and thanks to their collaborations on the project the standard was approved.
