The Institute for Apprenticeships has announced the full membership lists for its 15 industry route panels, who will play a key role in deciding the readiness of apprenticeship standards in development. The new members announced this week come from a range of industrial and private-sector backgrounds, joining the 15 expert chairs of the panels who were announced in April.
One of the 15 route panels covers Protective Services and this panel will review many of the apprenticeship standards within the Justice sector.
The panels play a key role in recommending whether an apprenticeship standard is ready to be finalised, or if it needs further work from the Trailblazer group of employers tasked with developing them.
The Institute’s chair, Antony Jenkins, said “Our route panels sit at the heart of our work, driving up quality and making sure apprenticeships are fit for purpose for employers and learners alike”.
The new Protective Services panel includes:
Group chair: Professor John Murphy, professor of advanced policing studies at Liverpool John Moores University
Vice-chair: Phil Garrigan, deputy chief fire marshall, Merseyside Fire and Rescue
Danny Wilks OBE, head of recruitment at Yorkshire and Humberside Police
Brigadier David Neal, marshall provost in Royal Military Police
Chris Armitt, assistant chief constable at Civil Nuclear Constabulary
Nikki Holland, director of investigations at National Crime Agency
