We would love to welcome you to the exciting world of modern construction.
This apprenticeship is all about assembling, positioning, and securing ready-made components on construction sites. You'll be working with a wide range of materials, such as concrete, timber, and composite materials.
You will work on site to help build amazing structures, such as houses, schools, hospitals, and more.
As an apprentice in this field, you'll get to work with a dynamic and adaptable team of colleagues and supervisors at the forefront of construction. You'll also collaborate with other professionals, like architects, engineers, and construction managers. It's a hands-on job that will require a vast range of skills.
Your main task will be to assemble and install components according to specific designs and guidelines. You'll learn how to handle materials safely, move them around, and finish the construction work. Don't worry, you'll have the support of experienced team members or supervisors to guide you along the way.
The apprenticeship offers several exciting routes for you to choose from. Depending on your employer, you can specialise in working with timber frames, relocatable modular and portable buildings, or permanent modular buildings. Each path will give you valuable skills and knowledge in your chosen area.
Join us on this apprenticeship journey and unlock the doors to a rewarding career in the construction industry. Get ready to build amazing structures that will leave a lasting impact on our communities.
