The MUT and MCAST discussed at length the issue of the ETC logbook. MCAST will be stopping the use of ETC logbooks for all apprentices with the exception of those students who still fall under the old ETC system and needs their apprenticeship to be assessed by the old trades committee, which is still a legal obligation for these students. The ETC logbook is essential for these students to be able to get acknowledgement under the old legal regime which will be phased out in the coming months / couple of years. Lecturers do not need to correct or assess the logbooks but just check that the student is filling it in. In this light the Union is lifting its directives on the ETC logbook. Any queries on this matter should be addressed to the Union.
