What can I expect from a construction apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships in Construction

That entirely depends on the level and particular area of construction you want to start an apprenticeship in. Most apprentices enter the construction industry in a specialist trade such as Bricklaying, Plastering or Civil Engineering. As you would expect with most construction disciplines the work you will be undertaking will mostly be outside so unfortunately in the winter it can get a bit nippy, however in the summer you'll be able to top up your tan.

During your construction apprenticeship you will be expected to split your time between on the job training and either classroom training or part-time study at a college or university of which your employer will happily accommodate to support your apprenticeship training.

Typical Construction Apprenticeship areas offered:

  • Trades such as Bricklaying, Plastering, Electricians
  • Building Services
  • Civil Engineering
  • Quantity Surveying
  • Project Management
  • Design Engineering
