Building for tomorrow starts with an Apprentice!
Our industry needs apprentices in all roofing disciplines to replace our ageing workforce and ensure the future. We can make it easier for you by directing you to the right contacts.
There has never been a better time to offer apprenticeships, with one in five employers hiring more apprentices to help them through the current economic climate and one in five roofing contractors over 50 due to retire in the immediate future. Forecasts indicate that the industry also requires a further 550 roofing operatives in the next four years across the North West Region.
The age range for apprentices has been relaxed and it’s now possible to recruit an apprentice at any age. Funding has changed slightly – get in touch.
Roofing apprenticeship training is developed in consultation with the industry, meaning an apprentice will learn the right skills for the job, combining attendance and practical experience in specially constructed Roofing Workshops with on-the-job-training.
Various training providers including Bolton College and DMR Training Wigan, offer apprentice training which leads to an NVQ 2 qualification.
