Training and Workforce News 

The latest enrolment for the Technologist Training Scheme was completed in April, with 27 new trainees enrolling. All trainees have been appointed an External Moderator and attended the online Induction Day on 4th May. We are now looking towards the next intake which is in October - applications must be received by the end of September.

The training scheme continues to expand and develop, ensuring more well trained technologists for a growing workforce and IPEM is proud to support this cause.

The results of the May 2021 viva session have now been ratified and the trainees informed of their result. The trainees sitting their viva in this session have worked hard to get to this stage, in often challenging circumstances due to the Covid 19 pandemic, and we wish them well in their future careers.

During the Covid 19 pandemic, all face to face meetings have had to be cancelled; however we have developed new systems to facilitate the remote assessment of trainees and with the help of our dedicated team of moderators, this will be the second viva session to be held via videoconferencing. The May 2021 session proved very successful in this vein, and this success will help with the future planning of viva sessions.

Graduates of the scheme are eligible to apply for RCT registration, followed by Full Membership of IPEM, which will afford them additional valuable benefits in relation to their IPEM membership and will aid their career progression.

Please see the relevant web pages if you are planning to apply for the next trainee intake, would like to apply to become an accredited training centre, or would like to apply to become a moderator for the training scheme
