An apprenticeship lets you earn whilst you learn – and gain a career qualification for life.
You’ll master the skills of the construction industry with your employer, and typically spend one day a week at college.
Apprenticeships last around two years for intermediate levels and up to four years for an advanced qualification. And you can choose to specialise in particular aspects of construction, including bricklaying, joinery, electrical, plumbing, civil engineer and surveying, to name but a few.
