The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has joint forces with business apprenticeship issuing authority Skills CFA to develop the first Advanced and Higher Level Apprenticeship in recruitment for England and Wales.
As part of the Skills CFA’s Pan Sector Partnership that joins professional bodies in business skills, including Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the Institute of Leadership and Management and the Trade Unions Congress and four other cross-industry bodies – the REC will work to develop standards, qualifications and training programmes across the UK for a whole range of business skills.
Skills CFA has one of the largest remits of any standards-setting body or Sector Skills Council by developing business standards and apprenticeships which represent 10 million employees in the UK.
“Recruitment is a people-centric industry and our standards of service and professionalism can be greatly enhanced by a systematic approach to attracting and developing the people who chose to become recruiters,” said REC CEO Kevin Green.
