Level 2 Print Operative Trailblazer, BPIF needs your input

Print Solutions

In May 2019, the BPIF secured full and final approval for the Level 3 print technician standard and many apprentices are now enrolled on this standard.

Following on from much discussion with government, in July 2020, the BPIF received confirmation that the employer led submission to develop a new apprenticeship standard for a Level 2 print operative had been successful.

This new standard follows the same format as the print technician and will be a core Level 2 print standard with three options ie pre-press operative, press operative and post press operative.

Working with the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) the organisation has now started to build the content for this new standard. Core to this are a list of duties, which are effectively a job description and a list of the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours (KSBs) which it would want a successful apprentice to have.

Ursula Daly, programme director at the BPIF, said: ‘We now need your input to ensure that we have the right standard for our industry. The Level 2 Print Operative is intended to be the number 2, the assistant and as such plays an important role in our industry. This level 2 reflects a large number of workers in print, often the backbone of the factory and it is important that we get this right and that is why we need you to provide us with your input.’ To provide feedback please contact Ursula Daly on Input needs to be with the BPIF by 22 January 2021.
