LCR Be More are excited to share a new feature to the service in the shape of occupational mapping, in partnership with the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE).
The maps group together occupations with related knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSB’s) into 15 routes. This makes it easier to see how they relate to one another. These are known as maps because they help people navigate the technical education landscape.
The maps show occupational standards which are employer-led descriptions of occupations. These standards describe each occupation, including its duties and required KSB’s.
IfATE’s apprenticeships and technical education products are based on these standards.
- over 900 occupational progression pages. Showing potential progression options into occupations that have similar knowledge and skills needs. This could support people into a higher-level apprenticeship, qualification, and more senior jobs.
- identifying ‘green’ occupations. Showing the impact an occupation has on helping the UK achieve net-carbon zero by 2050
- The average salary an employee can expect to earn
- T Level progression pages. This shows progression opportunities available after completion of a T Level
- Highlighting career starter apprenticeships which provide a great entry point for young people
The flexibility of the maps allows a user to engage with the information in different ways. Using the filters and display options allows users to arrange the data in the most helpful way.
The maps also include a customisable feature to develop their own maps. Users can save favourite occupations in a custom listing.
The occupational maps are a great way to explore technical occupations by allowing a user to discover the apprenticeships and technical qualifications available. There are 15 route maps to help a user discover a wide range of skilled occupations. We want everyone to be able to access information on technical education. This includes everyone from school leavers to employers.
The occupational maps show all IfATE approved:
- T Levels
- higher technical qualifications
- level 2 and 3 qualifications in the near future
