What are the aims of this programme?
shutterstock_53902480Apprenticeships allow 16-23 year olds to start work and earn a wage, while learning new skills that lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers in the industry, so they offer a structured programme that takes apprentices through the skills needed to do a job well. Most of an apprentice’s training takes place on the job but they will also have to complete off-the-job training within our centres at Nottingham or North East Lincolnshire over a number of days in a block. Scaffolding apprentices work towards a work-based competence qualification in addition to the nationally recognised construction training Diploma.
