Construction

If you want the chance to change the world around you, a construction apprenticeship could be just the job. With a growing need for new homes (and the constant need to restore existing ones), employers seek hardworking apprentices to pass on the tricks of the trade.

Our construction apprentices will develop a wide variety of skills needed to succeed in this industry. Successful completion of construction apprenticeships can provide routes into plumbing, carpentry, building, surveying and town planning.


POSSIBLE STARTING SALARY:

£10,000 - £16,000+ (once qualified)


WORK-BASED OR DAY/BLOCK RELEASE:

Our construction apprenticeships are delivered as day or block release which means apprentices will work on-site with an employer, and develop some of their skills at our Construction Centre.


COURSES OFFERED THROUGH VISION APPRENTICES:

Plumbing and heating, electrotechnical systems and equipment, decorative finishing, trowel occupations, wood occupations, plastering and construction contracting operations.


LENGTH OF PROGRAMMES:

Up to two years.


CAREER PROGRESSION ROUTES:

Depending on the apprenticeship studied, apprentices can find roles from construction operative to site supervisor. Practical jobs include construction operative, site technician, bricklayer, work supervisor or highway maintenance operative. You might find yourself working for a contractor, or even managing your own firm with enough experience. Apprentices in construction could also choose a professional pathway, leading on to jobs such as surveyor, civil engineer, site supervisor or town planner.
