Introducing Spotlight On Standards: this month Laboratory Technician (Level 3)

SIAS has been delivering end-point assessment (EPA) since our first cohort completed in 2016. We have a wealth of experience in working with employers and providers to ensure the tests we run are of the highest quality. This means industry can be assured that an apprentice who has passed a SIAS EPA has met the requirements to be deemed fully competent and is a worthy recipient of the apprenticeship award.

Our new Spotlight On section on our website will feature a regular guide to end-point assessment for the Standards we offer, and this month we focus on using the The Lab Tech Standard

The Laboratory Technician standard is a broad occupational standard that can be used for a range of job roles in many different contexts, all of which require the same core skills, knowledge and behaviours.

SIAS has run EPA for laboratory technicians working in many settings including:

  • Chemical plants
  • Schools pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • R&D Labs
  • Universities
  • Analytical services
  • Consumer products manufacturing.

Our new regular feature includes:

  • What’s involved in Lab Tech EPA?
  • How to work with SIAS
  • Arranging the EPA
  • Our Success Stories
